Definition as written by Sugar_fl:

A secondary shoot produced from the base or roots of a woody plant that gives rise to a new plant

Definition as written by Terry:

Suckers from plants that have been grafted onto rootstock must be analyzed carefully to determine if the growth is coming from the area above or below the crown of the plant. Suckers originating from below the crown are unlikely to produce a desired plant and should be pruned out
