Sprenger's Asparagus Fern
Asparagus Densiflorus, commonly called asparagus fern, is noted for its dense fern-like foliage which forms an arching mound that matures to 1-3 tall spreading to 3-4 wide. It is not a fern, however, but is a member of the asparagus family. This ornamental asparagus is an evergreen perennial with outward-sprawling fibrous and tuberous roots from which rise numerous semi-stiff arching stems (to 24 long) covered with linear, needle-like green leaves.
Plants perform best in organically rich, consistently moist but well drained soils in part shade (bright indirect light or filtered sun). Avoid direct hot afternoon sun which may cause the leaves to yellow. Tolerates full shade, but foliage may turn a lighter green.
Asparagus fern makes an attractive pot plant or hanging baskets - allowing the stems to arch over the sides, for a shady area, both indoors and out.
