Its not actually a fern!

Despite its name and appearance, the Asparagus Fern is not a true fern; It is part of the Liliaceae family. This plant reproduces via flowers and seeds, whereas true ferns reproduce via spores.

Easy to Propagate

If you'd like to keep your plant small, grow more plants or gift to friends; Asparagus ferns can easily be propagated by root division. The best time to do this is in the spring.

Whimsical Stems

Its winding stems can reach an impressive 2.5 meters - longer than your average double bed! Don't be alarmed, though; Asparagus Ferns don't mind some pruning.
