Asparagus Fern really looks like small asparagus spears when you look closely at the light green new growth. It makes an excellent hanging basket with dense wiry stems cascading down. Plant 3 to an 8″ hanging basket. Asparagus can also be used in summer annual combinations for the shade, lending an airy feel to plantings. Sold in a 2.5″ pot 4.83 fl. Oz. (143 ml).
