Foxtail Fern - Asparagus myersii

Fabulously tough, evergreen sculptural fern for baskets or pots.  

Beautiful green fronds all year - at last, a "fern" that you won't kill :)

The Foxtail Fern should not to be confused with the Asparagus aethiopicus or Sprengeri (Asparagus Fern) which is a declared weed.  The Sprengeri is a different species to the Myersii.  Where the Sprengeri is invasive, Myersii does not get out of control as it stays in a tight clump making it perfect for hanging baskets or a corner that needs a splash of green.

Plant in well draining mix in a bright spot or partial shade to full sun, the foxtail is not too fussy, will forgive the occassional dry period and will respond well to regular liquid fertiliser.

Plants available: Strong young plants with established roots ready to pot up to a 200mm pot, see pic.
