Ruscus hypoglossum

Ruscus hypoglossum
Stock Number: 40903
Availability: In Stock
Family: Asparagaceae
Cultural Code: CGH HP HH what's this?

"Butchers Broom" Erect stems taller than R. aculeatus ,with the leathery cladophylls (the leaf like branchlet bearing the reduced leaves and fls in their centers) larger and paler than those of R. aculeatus. Handsome. Reputed winter hardy to zone 7; although we doubt this--but this does suggest that this handsome clumper will flourish in that chilly winter indoor location in your house that only Aspidistra seem to favor. Turkish native bent on giving a primitive tone to a planting; always transforming into a piece of sculpture in a decorative pot.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
