    Initially upright to gently arching, the shoots of this feathery foliage house plant become pendent as they mature, so eventually form a cascading mass of green that looks wonderful tumbling over the edges of a pot or hanging basket. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). Asparagus ferns however do make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water regularly in the growing season, but less in winter. Mist the leaves with water occasionally - particularly in winter when the central heating is turned on. Maintain temperatures above 10°C in winter repot in spring when the plant becomes root-bound.
  • May cause skin allergy/fruits harmful if eaten
