Asparagus Fern is not a true fern, but a member of the lily family (Liliaceae).
Long, arching stems densely covered with short, needle-like leaflets give this plant a delicate appearance. It has a cascading habit that makes it ideal for a hanging basket.
Trim off old stems in the spring to make room for new growth and to keep the plant looking neat. Water thoroughly, allowing soil to dry out a little between waterings. Water sparingly in winter, but do not allow soil to dry out completely. Feed monthly spring through fall with a balanced house plant fertilizer diluted by half.
Mature plants will bloom in summer with small, white-to-pale pink flowers, sometimes followed by clusters of green berries that turn red in the winter. These berries are poisonous if eaten.
Florists love the feathery, emerald-green foliage in bouquets. It’s also a popular outdoor container plant in temperate climates. If planted in the ground, asparagus ferns are invasive.
