Shady Days Nursery has been growing "Poets Laurel or Italian Ruscus" for over 25 years.
'Danae Racemosa' is the scientific name of this species with lustrious dark green foliage.
An excellant evergreen that can tolerate the deepest of shade while also doing well in the filtered light areas of the garden. Another attribute is the production of beautiful large red berries in the Fall lasting several months. There is very low maintenance involved in growing this plant with the only pruning needed is the removal of older stems.
