True to its moniker, Asparagus aethiopicus 'Asparagus Fern' is an exquisite perennial plant native to South Africa. Adorned with delicate, needle-like leaves of vibrant emerald green, this botanical wonder grows up to 2 feet in height and spreads about 3 to 4 feet wide, making a grand statement in any indoor or outdoor garden. The intricate foliage gives the appearance of a fern, but this beauty is actually a member of the lily family. In a garden, the Asparagus Fern will spread out to create a lush, verdant carpet, while in a pot, it will cascade over the edges, producing an attractive "waterfall" effect. While it is a relatively fast grower, the Asparagus Fern isn't invasive, making it an ideal choice for those looking for a manageable yet eye-catching houseplant. The plant's feathery, arching stems give it a light and airy feel, adding a touch of elegance to any space. As the plant matures, it may start to develop bright red berries, further enhancing its aesthetic appeal. The Asparagus Fern truly comes into its own during the spring and summer months, when it produces small, delicate white or pink flowers. These blossoms add a subtle pop of color to the plant's lush greenery and create a delightful contrast against the foliage. What's more, these flowers often attract butterflies, bringing a touch of the great outdoors into your living space. Despite its tropical origins, the Asparagus Fern is a hardy plant that can withstand a variety of conditions, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners. Whether you choose to display it in a hanging basket, as a border in your garden, or as a standalone feature in a pot, the Asparagus Fern will undoubtedly add a dash of charm and sophistication to your home or garden. Overall, the Asparagus aethiopicus 'Asparagus Fern' is more than just a plant; it's a stunning piece of living decor that brings a sense of tranquility and natural beauty to any space. Its lush, feathery foliage, delicate blossoms, and vibrant berries make it a true showstopper, promising to turn heads and captivate all who lay eyes on it.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
