Asparagus retrofractus, commonly referred to as Asparagus Fern, is really not a fern. It gets its nickname from its densely branched, feathery ‘leaves’ which gives it a fern-like appearance. The clusters of ‘leaves’ earn it its other nickname Pom Pom Asparagus Fern. It is a hardy houseplant that thrives in bright shade and regular misting.
Asparagus is a genus of flowering plants in the Asparagaceae family, which includes the commercially important Asparagus officinalis, or Asparagus vegetable, that we eat. The genus is quite diverse, with species originating from rainforests to semi-desert regions.
