Butcher's Broom/Bodeca lobodika

Ruscus aculeatus


Small thick leaves with small pellets and red berry. Grows in as a bush.


Near coastlines, rocky coastlines in submediterrain areas-Primorska.


I find this strange-all the sources I've found say that they grow in spring, it also says it's an evergreen bush, but is it suppose to look like this at the end of November when I found it? Protected plant. Called "bodeca lobodika". Used in for medical uses-to improve circulation.
