Danae (Alexandrian Laurel)

Danae, Poet's Laurel or Alexandrian Laurel is very close to Ruscus and native from southeastern Europe to Asia Minor and Persia growing in shaded spots in woods. An evergreen small shrub with flattened "foliage" (i.e. green, flattened leaf-like branches) and ornamental, medium sized bright orange berries in autumn and winter. Fresh branches with berries are excessively collected for Christmas decoration purposes and thus this beautiful plant has become very rare in nature.
Sow seeds in any humus rich, yet well drained soil from autumn to spring, keep pots in a protected spot, sheltered from rain outside during winter. Will germinate in late spring.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
5 seeds per package.
