About Asparagus densiflorus
Asparagus densiflorus is native to southern regions of South Africa. Growing asparagus fern is easy. Asparagus belongs to Asparagaceae family.
Asparagus densiflorus is a perennial evergreen that boasts luscious and fluffy stems of pine needle-like leaves, giving it a plush appearance. A member of the asparagus family, the foxtail fern is actually not a fern at all, as the plant uses seeds to reproduce, not spores. The feathery plant yields small white flowers that produce eye-catching red berries, hence makes a wonderful addition to both outside gardens and indoor house plant collections. Foxtail fern is also used as greenery in flower arrangements, where it stays fresh for two to three weeks.
Though delicate-looking, foxtail fern is quite hardy. It’s a laidback plant with easy care requirements. All this fern needs is bright, indirect light and well-draining soil. Pair this with a healthy amount of room to grow and the occasional trimming of spent stems, and you will have a beautifully bushy plant. The foxtail fern has tuberous roots, making it drought-tolerant.
