Vinebud is a type of rockbud, native to many regions of Roshar. Vinebud plants have an elastic, hollow stem that their leaves, vine-like tendrils and cone-like flowers retract into as it expands outward. The plants retract for the highstorm, but also when they detect nearby motion. 
Gardeners on Roshar have cultivated a variety of vinebud that does not retract back into its stem. It is used as a houseplant.
The design for vinebuds was based on sea anemone.
