Ming Fern (Asparagus macowanii)

Despite its name, the ming fern is a flowering plant and not a fern at all.   It produces white flowers in the spring to early summer.  It is in the same genus as the edible cultivated perennial vegetable, Asparagus officinalis.

Ming Ferns do well in full sun as well as shaded locations.  A native to arid regions of South Africa, this is a very drought tolerant plant.  It can reach a height of 4-6′ when grown in the ground, but can also be grown in containers to achieve a much smaller plant.

Whether you want to grow one in the garden or maintain one in a decorative pot on a balcony or patio, we have many to choose from in 3 gal. containers for $10.00 each.
