Vascular plants (also known as tracheophytes or higher plants) form a large group of plants that are very roughly defined. Vascular plants are those plants that have lignified tissues for conducting water, minerals, and photosynthetic products through the plant. Vascular plants include the clubmosses, Equisetum, ferns, gymnosperms (including conifers) and angiosperms (flowering plants). Scientific names for the group include Tracheophyta and Tracheobionta.

on again Ill plant children
under it, Ill light up my soul
with a match and let it sing....”
