The Asparagus fern has elegant soft, feathery foliage cascading on wiry stems. While young plants start life in a compact shape, as they mature they develop into climbing plants.

About Asparagus Fern

History

Asparagus setaceus or the Asparagus fern is a fast-growing climber species that have become naturalised and invasive across the tropics. Due to its fast growth, in many places, it has been classified as a weed.

Cultivation

Native to southern Africa, the Asparagus ferns leaves are actually modified branches called cladophylls. Mature plants become woody and can develop sharp spines. In the wild, the plant can grow small blackberries which are spread by birds.

Care

The Asparagus fern loves warmth and humidity. It's easier to look after than a true fern but doesn't like cold and dry air in winter. They should be kept somewhere humid like a bathroom or kitchen and misted regularly. Alternatively, keep its environment humid with a humidifier. The Asparagus ferns shape can be maintained through pruning. Watch out for the thorns that sometimes develop as they can prick you.

Did you know?

The Asparagus fern is not a true fern and is actually part of the lily family, Liliaceae. It's closely related to tulips, daylilies, amaryllis, and hostas. Unlike true ferns, which spread by spores, the Asparagus fern spreads by the seeds found in their small, blackberries.

Toxicity

If ingested this plant can be toxic or poisonous so keep away from dogs, cats or other pets and small children.

Lace Fern; Common Asparagus Fern; Climbing Asparagus
