Asparagus fern is a sturdy faker. It is not related to asparagus (in fact, it’s poisonous) and isn’t a fern (it spreads by seeds, not spores). Rather, it’s a quick-growing tropical perennial that’s virtually indestructible as a houseplant.

Asparagus ferns climb, trail, or sit upright, which makes them very flexible plants in a planting scheme (indoors or out). Asparagus plumosus, an aggressive climber, can be snipped for arrangements (pick mature shoots for longevity). The tentacles of foxtail fern, Asparagus densiflorus ‘Myers’, add texture and structure to a perennial bed. Beware: Several varieties are considered invasive outdoors.
