Ruscus aculeatus, commonly known as Butcher's Broom, is a low evergreen Eurasian shrub with a unique appearance. It has flat shoots known as cladodes that resemble stiff, spine-tipped leaves and small greenish flowers that bloom in spring. The female flowers produce a red berry, which supports bird distribution. Butcher's Broom occurs in woodlands and hedgerows and can tolerate deep shade and coastal cliffs. It is often planted in gardens and has spread as a garden escape in many areas outside its native range. Butcher's Broom has been known to enhance blood flow to the brain, legs, and hands and is commonly used to treat constipation, water retention, and varicose veins. It is also used for hemorrhoids and postural hypotension. The plant can be grown from seed with cold stratification and nutrient-rich soil. Butcher's Broom is suitable for various soil types and can tolerate full shade or semi-shade. The young shoots are edible and can be used as an asparagus substitute, while the roasted seed can be used as a coffee substitute. Butcher's Broom is a unique and versatile plant with various medicinal and culinary uses. Try growing it in your garden today!
