Ruscus hypoglossum from Italy - BSWJ15930

Pot Size: 2 litre
Price: £30.00
A dense thicket-forming evergreen rhizomatous sub-shrub, when growing in a moist warm situation, with arching stems to 1m tall in this collection, but normally only half that. An easily identified species, by the large floral bract on the upper surface of the leaf-like cladode (flattened stem), which subtends the small inflorescence attached to the mid vein. A confused species described in 1753, commonly known in some of its native habitats, as the two tongued ruscus. The tiny intriguing winter born flowers are followed by plump red fruit on female plants if pollinated. Our seed collection from a mountain forest near Altana eastern Italy in 2018. Best grown in shade in a moisture retentive fertile soil protected from wind. Very hardy.
