Asparagus Fern Sprengeri is probably the most popular type of asparagus fern. Sprengeri has arching branches covered with fine, medium-green needle-like foliage. The amount of sunlight can affect the color of the foliage. Asparagus ferns’ needle leaves are pointed and fell like stickers.
The various Asparagus “ferns” are not true ferns, but are members of the lily family, Liliaceae.
Sprengeri Asparagus Ferns are popular accent plants for combination planters, patio planters and flower begs. Its fine and delicate texture adds a touch of sophistication to combinations. Use caution when planting Asparagus Ferns in fragile containers. The heavy roots have the capability to break even the best pots. They grow best in filtered sunlight in evenly moist soil.
Plant Sprengeri Ferns 14-20″ apart in full shade to part sun. Sprengeri grow 14-24″ tall and can get 18-24″ wide or more. They can get a lot bigger in warmer regions or indoors in ideal conditions.
