Mystery plant.
Anyone know what this is? It came in a commercial bouquet. The leaves are about two and a half inches long, with a tiny white flower growing out of the underside. The flower has three thicker petals with three thinner ones in between. I've never seen anything like it before.




I had this green plant - on a stem - in a bouquet ages ago and have kept it in water eversince - each leaf has the little flower underneath - and it has survived - sorry I dont know what it is called though - I guess florists use it with bouquets.

It's Butcher's Broom - Ruscus aculeatus.

Thanks. Very interesting. It's used to make drugs that improve blood circulation. I'll keep some in water and see if it roots.

Doesn't it have little red berries after the flowers? Read about it but never seen one before.

I think it has red berries that turn black.
