The Exotic Asparagus Ferns
The Asparagus ferns to me are one of the most beautiful types of evergreen shrubs and types of ferns because of its texture and unique sculpted look as if someone purposely gathered them together to form what looks like octopus tentacles with little care of asparagus fern to achieve its unique look.
These types of ferns are such a great addition for any tropical evergreen garden with a touch of exotic texture, color and uniqueness that will have your family admiring them.
The scientific name of plants of this species is called Asparagus Densiflorus and it originates from tropical Africa and also in
some parts of Asia.
Australia is known for having fern cultivators in the tropical regions in Australia. You will also see it being grown out in natural habitats in places like coastal areas in the Southeastern Cape and KwaZulu Natal which is a province of South Africa and Southern regions in the United States.
It is most commonly grown as a perennial evergreen in zones 9 to 11 but it has been grown in lesser zones but may not survive as an evergreen with the colder temperatures.
I have seen them here and there, here in Southern California but its not a typical garden plant or house plant that you would see on every corner, that’s what makes it so special.

This fern plant in its natural habitat will grow naturally in moist sand and loam type soils so try your best to simulate this type of soil for the best growth possible weather in a pot or grown in your garden bed.
These plans are not completely perennial shade pants so make
sure when planting outside to find a location with just partial shade.
Too much shade will guarantee your plant will produce yellow foliage. If you are planting your plant indoors your plants will need bright light.
When watering its real simple just make sure to let the soil dry out between each watering.
This plant needs frequent fertilizing often at the least every month with a diluted liquid fertilizer.
