    Hello,

    More about this plant:
    • I've found it in a hilly region (in Romania), deep in the forest (along with Dryopteris Filix-mas)
    • the flowering plants reach 20 - 30 cm
    • the young plants have clean leaves (no flower and leaflet) and are about 8 - 10 cm tall
    • the buds of the new plants grow extremely slow (1 cm per year?)

    In case you don't recognize it, any hints about potentially related plants would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Ruscus hypoglossum

    Thank you kindly, Michael F. I love the peculiarity and colour of it. In 2 years the young (?) plants haven't changed (grown) at all, so I need to find more info about it.
