When used outside, the Asparagus Fern is a great plant to use in mixed containers. Its vibrant color accents a variety of flowers and the delicate texture can create great contrast with broad-leafed plants. Outdoor hanging baskets are another perfect option for this plant.

Asparagus Fern Care:

When grown indoors, place an Asparagus Fern in a medium to bright spot. During hot summer months, it's ideal to shield this plant from too much direct sun. Water the Asparagus Fern regularly as the leaves will turn brown and dry out without adequate water.

Check the soil moisture level to determine how often your plant needs water as this can vary dependent upon temperature and light exposure. Plant watering globes are helpful.
