Foxtail Ferns produces arching two foot fronds of dense light green needles, creating the illusion of a pack of upright fox tails. Tiny white flowers in the summer are followed by bright red berries in the fall.
There are several different species and varieties of Asparagus Fern that have been grown as house plants since the late 19th century because they are are one of the fastest growing, least demanding, easiest to care for plants for growing indoors.
Asparagus Ferns produce tiny white flowers in late summer to fall, and will occasionally form red or black berries. They can be trained to cascade down from a hanging planter, or to grow up a totem as a vine.

These are not true ferns but are in fact members of the Lily family.
The needle-like leaves are actually called cladodes which perform the process of photosynthesis. The actual leaves are tiny and scale-like, appearing where the cladodes meets the stem.

Common name: Foxtail Ferns, Cat s Tail
Color: White
Bloom time: late summer to fall
Height: 2-4 feet.
Difficulty level: Easy.

Planting & Care
Asparagus Ferns develop large tuberous roots and can become pot-bound in a relatively short period of time.
They will often put out more growth and flowers after they become root-bound but will dry out far quicker and will need more frequent watering or thorough drenching. It is a good idea to re-pot established plants in the spring before new growth begins, every 3 to 4 years.

Under proper conditions, Asparagus Ferns will produce lots of vigorous, evergreen growth at all times of the year.
If pruning becomes necessary, it is best to cut entire stems back to the base of the plant rather than just shortening them.

Sunlight: Bright, indirect light without any full sun.

Soil: Rich, light, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. The addition of peat moss to a good, commercial potting soil will take care of this requirement.

Water: Grow best when they are given plenty of water, especially when they are actively growing.

Temprature: Thrive in daytime temperatures of 70°-75° with it 10° cooler at night.

Fertilizer: As soon as new growth begins in early spring, begin feeding your Asparagus every 3-4 weeks,using a liquid all-purpose fertilizer. Continue with this feeding schedule until growth slows in the fall.

Care:
  • Asparagus Ferns enjoy spending the summer outdoors in the shade of a tree, but the transition from outside to an inside environment can be quite traumatic for many plants, depending on the degree of change in light and temperature.
  • Acclimatize them gradually from one environment to the next over a 2-3 week span.
  • Be sure to inspect them very carefully before bringing them back indoors, and regularly thereafter.
  • Asparagus Ferns are very prone to spider mites, scale insects and mealy bugs.
  • If an infestation has gotten out of control, you can cut off all of the stems back to the soil line and discard the infested foliage.
  • New stems will then grow back from the bulbs.
  • Asparagus ferns can develop yellow needles for many different reasons, including a change in light, rapid temperature change, over watering, under watering, and spider mites.
  • New growth will usually quickly resume as soon as the cause of distress is resolved.
  • It is a good idea to re-pot established plants in the spring before new growth begins, every 3 to 4 years.
  • If pruning becomes necessary, it is best to cut entire stems back to the base of the plant rather than just shortening them.

Use
Ornamental use:
  • They can be trained to cascade down from a hanging planter, or to grow up a totem as a vine.
