Arching fronds of graceful fresh green needle-like foliage make Asparagus Fern perfect for containers and hanging baskets, either alone or in combinations. Named for Carl Ludwig Sprenger who popularized it over a century ago as an indoor ornamental. Not related to asparagus, although it's appearance is similar to mature asparagus plants.
Best grown in containers, Asparagus Fern needs no attention other than occasional watering. Grows well indoors too, where it not only looks good all year, but is an excellent air purifier.
