These leaves have been sitting in water for almost a year after being included as part of a flower arrangement. They have not formed any roots in the water, but recently started growing new leaves out of some buds in the bottom of each leaf. Can you identify them? Photos: 1 2 3 . Thank you,

Doesn't look like a Wandering Jew to me. Not sure what it is though. It's pretty unusual.

Almost looks like a species of Polygonatum.

Best answer: look up Israeli Ruscus. It is often used in flower arrangements and does last a long time.

Best answer: Some info on Ruscus aculeatus.
