棵 Kē

棵 may be used for measuring plants. Normally, the plants are slim and tall and only have leafs. Flowers cannot be measured by 棵.

一棵树 yì kē shù 'a tree'

一棵草 yì kē cǎo 'a blade of grass'

一颗菜 yì kē cài 'a cabbage'

小偷躲在一棵树后。 Xiǎotōu duǒ zài yì kē shù hòu.
'The thief lurked behind a tree.'

在这些蔬菜之中,他选了最简单的,比如一颗菜。 Zài zhè xiē shūcài zhī zhōng, tā xuǎnle zuì jiǎndān de, bǐrú yì kē cài.
'From amongst these vegetables he selected the most simple — a cabbage, for instance.'

但你毕竟是一棵草。 Dàn nǐ bìjìng shi yì kē cǎo.
'But you, after all, are a blade of grass.'
(This sentence occurs in a fairy tale.)
