Italian ruscus, named also as butcher’s broom, is an evergreen woody branched shrub, a member of the Asparagaceae family. It has thick stems and narrow tear-shaped leaves of rich green color. The long, skinny green branches, together with its tiny flowers or red berries, make this Italian greenery an excellent filler. It can be used in bouquet, table centerpiece, floral arrangements or as standalone plants in vase, adding a touch of elegance to floral designs and wedding decor. Both our fresh and preserved ruscus are available year-round, and preserved versions are available in many colors for different occasions.
