Why we love this plant:

  • Uses: Beautiful bouquet filler, house plant
  • Garden growth success: Rapid growth rate, low maintenance 

Asparagus Fern is grown for the graceful feathery-like, fern-like foliage, and the sprays are a favorite filler used in floral arrangements. One of the fastest-growing least demanding houseplants, the Asparagus Fern is not a fern at all, but rather a plant that belongs to the asparagus family. The plant needs bright indirect light, without full sun. Insufficient light will result in yellow needles that drop.

The ferns produce large, tuberous roots that can become pot bound quickly. Growing outdoors will allow the roots to have the room needed, but be sure to plant where there will be no direct sunlight. The plant will be happiest outdoors under the shade of a tree with temperatures around 70-degrees. When harvesting for cut floral arrangements, cut stems all the way back to the root rather than just shortening them.
