The Asparagus fern (Asparagus densiflorus) is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for plant native to South Africa. It's a member of the lily family, but it's not a true fern, as its name suggests.
Asparagus ferns are known for their feathery, bright green foliage that resembles tiny pine needles. The leaves grow on long, arching stems that can reach up to 2-3 feet long. The plant can also produce small white or pink flowers in the summer, but they're not particularly showy.
Asparagus ferns have a trailing, vine-like growth habit that makes them perfect for hanging baskets or as trailing foliage in a larger container garden. They're also great for adding a touch of greenery to any room or outdoor space.

🪴Potting: Well-draining soil with added perlite. We suggest Potted Elephant Indoor potting mix (50/50 peat moss & pumice). A pot with good drainage is also essential to prevent water from accumulating at the bottom.
