Description: A long disputed species or variety depending on your view, which only occurs in the eastern end of Ruscus’ distribution. Which forms loose thickets of evergreen rhizomatous sub-shrubs, with upright slender stems to 60cm tall. Bearing narrowly elliptic silvery-grey leaf-like cladodes (flattened stems), which carry an inflorescence above on a central vein. The tiny intriguing winter borne flowers are followed by plump red fruit on female flowers if pollinated. This 2018 seed collection was gathered from the moist Dagomis Valley, close to Sochi on the Russian Black Sea coastal area. Best grown in shade in a humus rich but well drained soil.
