Asparagus setaceus, 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. Its umbrella-like ‘leaves’ can look like layers of a forest canopy and give a very zen feel to the home.
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.
