Asparagus Myers

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. 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 and it is hardy to 20° F so useful in USDA zones 9-10. 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.
