Asparagus Fern

Native to South Africa, this herbaceous, evergreen perennial is actually no fern at all! In fact the Asparagus Fern "Sprengeri' is actually more closely related to the edible asparagus, except in the edible aspect. They are diecious (male and female flowers on one plant) and has the ability to bloom small inconspicuous flowers under the right conditions, these can then mature into red ornamental berries from mid to late summer.
