Asparagus Fern

Asparagus aethiopicus

Asparagus Fern features easy care arching fronds of fresh green, needle-like foliage. Excellent in hanging baskets and a great companion annual for outdoor summer containers. Prune regularly for upright, neat foliage. If you prefer a cascading look, put your fern in a hanging basket, or in a sturdy pot on a shelf or windowsill.
