Unique, Plume-Like Greens and Soft Textural Interest
If you want to add dimension to any space, the Myers Asparagus Fern is a must-have. For starters, this one-of-a-kind perennial boasts long, upright stems that hold soft needle-like foliage for truly unique visual interest. Ornamental berries emerge later in the season and attract graceful wildlife for eye-catching looks that last from month to month.
Plus, the Myers is versatile. You can plant this dramatic fern just about anywhere, from hanging baskets to containers or borders and groundcover. And though it’s a semi-evergreen plant in milder winter regions, container-grown Ferns can be brought indoors during harsher winter weather. It’s also low-maintenance, with a moderate, manageable growth rate and tolerance to mild drought and mild frost.
But best of all, our Myers Asparagus Fern is the top variety because it’s grown and nurtured well, long before it arrives to your door. Since we’ve meticulously monitored our Myers Asparagus at our nursery, you’ll get a proven performer that’s consistent in size, shape and richly-hued green color, season after season and year over year.
That means you’ll get the exotic, elegant Myers Asparagus Fern with the twist of effortless maintenance and strong growth. Reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery – get your own Myers Asparagus Fern today, before it’s gone!
Planting & Care
Planting: Though it needs evenly moist, well-drained soil and 4 to 6 hours of sun each day with some shade to thrive, the Myers Asparagus is easy to maintain. Once you’ve found a suitable location for planting, simply dig a hole that’s approximately 2 to 3 times the width of its root ball, place your plant, back fill its soil and finally, water to settle its roots. And ensure you avoid harsh, hot afternoon sun exposure for best results.
Watering: Water your Myers Asparagus regularly, about once or twice per week, until it’s fully established. If you’re not sure when to water your Myers, however, check for soil dryness about 2 to 3 inches down in the surrounding soil – if its soil is dry, it’s time to water. Once it’s established, it still prefers regular moisture but will tolerate mild drought.
Fertilizing: Use a rich organic compost in your soil for healthy growth.
- Pruning: For a neater appearance, remove old, faded stems and complete any pruning during fall.
