Asparagus Fern or Asparagus Setaceus

Asparagus setaceus plumosus is an elegant fern like houseplant with long wiry stems and lovely frond-like sprays that scramble outwards horizontally.   Looking much like a tiny cedar tree in form it is bushy initially, developing long, twining stems of bright green, feathery fronds. Tiny green-white bell shaped flowers may appear in late summer which develop into small, purple berries. Although Asparagus setaceus looks soft and frilly, it does have pretty vicious thorns to watch for when handling!  These examples are in a 12cm pot and are around 35cm tall.

Asparagus setaceus plumosus is also known as Lace Fern, Common Asparagus Fern or Climbing Asparagus. Although it is called a fern, it is really a member of the lily family. It is fast growing and easy to care for and can reach a height of 2.5m unless pruned.
