Asparagus Fern


Asparagus Fern is an elegant fern with long wiry stems and lovely frond-like sprays that scramble outwards horizontally. It is bushy initially, developing long, twining stems of bright green, feathery fronds. Tiny green-white bell shaped flowers may appear in late summer which develop into small, purple berries. Although Asparagus setaceus looks soft and frilly, it does develop thorns to watch for when handling.

Asparagus setaceus plumosus is also known as Lace Fern, Common Asparagus Fern or Climbing Asparagus. Although it is called a fern, it is really a member of the lily family. It is fast growing and easy to care for and can reach a height of 2.5m unless pruned.
