Asparagus Fern (Asparagus Densiflorus )

AKA "Myers"

These are also referred to as Foxtail Ferns, which makes sense once you get a look at them. Native to South Africa, these  ferns aren’t big fans of frost or severe cold. Our moderate climate is a great place for them to thrive.

Where They Do Well:

The like sun or partial shade, and are just as happy in the ground as they are in containers. They grow rather slowly to about 3 or 4 feet in width.


We’ll make sure the Asparagus Fern is planted in well drained soil, so you can water them regularly. They get fed in the Spring and give them a good trim to make room for new sprouts.
