Synonyms: Kneeholy. Knee Holly. Kneeholm. Jew's Myrtle. Sweet Broom. Pettigree.
Description: The name Knee Holly appears to have been given it from its rising to about the height of a man's knee (though occasionally specimens are found growing about 3 feet high), and from its having, like the true Holly, prickly leaves, which are also evergreen.
There is no other British plant exhibiting any similarity to the Butcher's Broom. Its tough, green, erect, striated stems, which are destitute of bark, send out from the upper part many short branches, plentifully furnished with very rigid leaves, which are really a mere expansion of the stem, and terminate each in a single sharp spine. The small greenish-white flowers are solitary growing from the centre of the leaves and blossom in the early spring. They are dioecious, i.e. stamens and pistils are on different plants, as is also mostly the case with the Holly and Mistletoe. The corolla is deeply six-cleft, the stamens, in the one kind of flower, connected at the base, the style, in the fertile flowers, surrounded by a nectary. The fertile flowers are succeeded by scarlet berries as large as cherries, which are ripe in September, and remain attached to the plant all the winter and cause it often to be picked for room decoration.
Medicinal Action and Uses: Diaphoretic, diuretic, deobstruent and aperient. Was much recommended by Dioscorides and other ancient physicians as an aperient and diuretic in dropsy, urinary obstructions and nephritic cases.
A decoction of the root is the usual form of administration, and it is still considered of use in jaundice and gravel. One pint of boiling water to 1 oz. of the twigs, or 1/2 oz. of the bruised fresh root has also been recommended as an infusion, which may be taken as tea.In scrofulous tumours, advantage has been realized by administering the root in doses of a drachm every morning.
The decoction, sweetened with honey, is said to clear the chest of phlegm and relieve difficult breathing.
The boughs have been employed for flogging chilblains.

A pleasant composition Milos with great aesthetic sense for the simplicity of the scene, very well illuminated, with soft tones, excellent sharpness and perfect diffusion of the bottom due to exact used DOF.

Hi Milos,
Wonderful shot full of vibrant colors.
I like the blurry BG alot.
Well done.

The beauty of this shot lies in the composition, Milos. Simple yet so very appealing. The arrangement of leaves on the branch and the red fruit at the centre make this picture a work of art.
Thanks for sharing it.

Hi Milos.
Perfect quality of the shot. Excellent separation of the sprig from BG. Amazing exactness of the reproduction of sprig details and colours. We can see all smallest details including specks of dust (or pollen). Expressive diagonal construction of the shot. Clearness of the paints is tremendous. This list may be continued. BRAVO and my best regards.

Hello my beautiful friend Milos. Best wishes to you in 2007. I have enjoyed your photos this year and I especially enjoy your notes.

I wish we had a beautiful holly of this size in USA. Your photo is a favorite to me for these reasons:
1. Nice composition
2. Well saturated, rich colors of holiday season
3. Perfect exposure
4. Exceptional detail and focus
5. Excellent DOF and background

I wish I could write to you in your first language, but I do not know how.

Thank you for this wonderful gift of photo,

Belle photo, bien nette,bien claire,on y voit bien les d騁ails,les poussi鑽es,les petites b鑼es. Amiti駸 Thomas

Witaj Milos!
