Nice plant that is gonna show its dark purple sprouts very soon! :) Oh it brings so much joy in my heart, it had this crazy color, 1st of all is purple and then is green and then it got such a lovely berries in the middle of the winter :)
just a brief correction Latin name consists of three parts, remember that just the first word is written in capital while the second is an adjective, is a descriptive part of the name and it's written with small letters. The 3rd part is oftenly not common on this site (for to me unknown reasons), should be merited, 1st letter of scientist's surname which has discover it or/ and describe it and determinate it, in this case is L. In total the name is: Ruscus aculeatus L.
