Asparagus Plumosus - 'Asparagus Fern'
A fern that isn’t a true fern, the asparagus fern is actually a member of the lily family - fancy that!
Incorrectly referred to as a fern, this is a chic indoor plant, with slender stems and near straight spreading frond-like branches. Initially bushy, the stems become more thread-like as the plant grows, and it develops long, twining stems of bright green, feathery fronds. Little green-white bell-shaped flowers can possibly appear in summer which then develop into small, purple berries.
Native to South Africa, it flourishes in partial shade of other, larder trees. Because it needs the heat to survive, it currently can’t grow outside in the UK (though we may have to edit this section in 2030) but make a perfect houseplant. Just like the wide, it loves the shade, and s happy chilling in indirect light all day.
Even though it’s not a true fern, they do have one important thing in common - they also hate being touched. You’ve been warned!
