Butcher’s Broom (Ruscus aculeatus), packet of 10 seeds
Family: Ruscus (Ruscaceae)
Hardy to Zones 7 to 12
Evergreen subshrub native to the Mediterranean. Plant prefers part sun to shade and mesic to dry soils. As a landscape accent, these are really excellent, and over here in the new world this plant is considered rare. In southern Europe, the extremely tough branches were made into brooms used by butchers. Traditional usage: urinary infection. Plant prefers shade and fast draining, dryish soils. Multicycle germinator. The seeds must be planted in warm medium and kept moist for an extended period of time before germination will occur. 6 month germination times are not uncommon, and it is wrong to prematurely discard the planting. Plant 3 seeds to a gallon pot and keep in the greenhouse and water daily. Results will eventually occur.
10 (large) seeds/pkt., Open Pollinated, Untreated, NO GMO’s
