Is "Rows to Display" value available via API?

I’m working on a custom field renderer for text areas. I’d like to be able to use the field property of “Rows to Display” to have the renderer show that many rows in the edit function, but I can’t find that property documented anywhere (thought it would be in renderers, skuid.ui.Field, or the model field metadata or…). Is it available? And how would one get it?
