When looking to add interesting evergreen texture to a landscape, the Asparagus Fern stands out as an excellent drought tolerant groundcover or foundation plant, and a fine addition to borders and perennial beds.
Its bright green color and fern-like texture help to soften harsh, rocky areas of the garden and contrast beautifully with darker evergreens. Asparagus Fern truly shines, however, when used in hanging baskets and tall planters, where its feathery foliage can be showcased as it gracefully cascades to the ground. Small red berries will cling to the branches in fall until they’re plucked and eaten by a hungry bird.
