Sprout: the strewing of life; when it catches hold it reforms in its original shape. The notation that a plant sprouts is not a comment on the individual plant but on the extension of the species as a whole. The cheatgrass in the image below (both dead seed stalk and new sprout) is not a cheatgrass individual but cheatgrass itself, in the way that all members of a church congregation are the true church.
