Description: Asparagus densiflorus 'Myers' (Foxtail Fern) - An evergreen perennial to 2 feet tall by about 4 feet wide with light green needle-like leaves that clothe upright plum-like stems likened to spears or "rabbit ears". These spear-like stems arise from white fleshy tubers just below the soil surface and can reach upwards to 2 to 3 feet long and radiate outwards from the center of the plant to give an overall appearance of a fluffy mound. Tiny white flowers appear tight inside the leaves in mid-summer followed by green berries that ripen decoratively to red by fall. Many Asparagus species are thorny and while this species does have thorns, they are small and hardly noticeable. A fun and attractive plant in the garden - great for mass plantings or container planting and can even be grown as a house plant though it has been included in poisonous plant lists because the berries are considered to be mildly toxic and the sap can cause short duration dermatitis.
Care:Plant in full coastal sun to light shade in about any type of soil with moderate to only occasional irrigation - though lush looking, this is a pretty drought tolerant plant.
