Product information

    Ruscus aculeatus is an evergreen shrub and a very special perennial that is closely related to the asparagus. This is also known under the name Muizedoorn.
    Young shoots of this plant can be eaten and taste like asparagus.
    From the old branches brooms were made in Italy in the past.
    The plant grows very slowly and the maximum height is about 100 cm and the width is 80 cm and this takes years.

    A sunny to a shady place is well tolerated by the Muisedoorn, as well as a sandy or clay soil.
    In spring, a small white flower appears on the oblong deep green stiff smooth leaves on the upper side in the center.
    Only the female flowers on this plant (plant is dioecious) develop a berry on top of the leaf.
    At first this berry is green, but in the autumn it turns bright red and gives it a spectacular look.
    These branches can easily be used as decoration in a flower arrangement for Christmas.

    The root of the mouse is processed into an extract for medical use against various ailments such as varicose veins, better blood flow, strengthening the veins and capillaries, hemorrhoids and anti-inflammatory effect.
    The Ruscus aculeatus is hardy and can be planted perfectly in the ground, you do not have to take precautionary measures. If planted in a pot, then ensure that the pot can not freeze in the winter.

    Heel erg interessant, maar als de plant tweehuizig is heb je dan en een vrouwelijke plant en een manelijke plant nodig voor de bestuiving om de bessen te krijgen op de vrouwelijke plant? Zo ja, welke plant wordt dan verkocht? De mannelijke? Of de vrouwelijke?

    -Hallo Rick, voor bestuiving van de Ruscus heb je inderdaad een mannetje en een vrouwtje nodig. Wij hebben planten uit zaad en hebben meerdere zaadjes in een pot gestopt. Het onderscheid tussen de twee is niet te zien. Dit wordt nog eens extra moeilijk doordat de vrouwelijke bloemen de mannelijke bloemen nabootsen om bestoven te worden(het zogenoemde: "pollination by deceit".
