Asparagus densiflorus
“Foxtail Fern”

So unique! This eye-catching evergreen is immediately recognizable by its densely-packed semi-upright towers of needle-like foliage that earned it the common name “Foxtail Fern”. Reaching 2’ tall and a bit wider, it continues to send up tentacle-like branches, gradually forming an attractively dense colony. Surprisingly drought tolerant, vigorous and easy to grow – it’s always in demand! Though it may produce tiny white flowers and possibly green berries, it’s the soft, architectural foliage that you’re after here. This South Africa native makes a gorgeous specimen plant for the garden or a container and is very exciting planted in groups. Provide fertile, well-drained soil. Some animals can get dermatitis from contact, so place accordingly. Deer resistant.
