Asparagus Fern - (STARTER PLANT) PERENNIAL FOLIAGE
Asparagus densiflorous (also called Springeri Fern) is a perennial (hardy in Zones 9b-11) used in landscape, combination planters and standalone containers. Though not a true fern (it's really a member of the lily family), its upright, sprawling habit and finely textured, evergreen foliage make it an interesting plant to add diversity to your garden center selections. A native to southern Africa, Springeri Fern handles drought very well. These fast-growing plants can spread 3-4 feet and reach heights of 1-2 feet. As the branches get longer, they will cascade due to their own weight and can be trained to flow over a wall or container.
