Asparagus Fern

The Bennie brought this home about 5 years ago. I cut it back in the fall and it comes in the house for winter.
It is blooming for the first time

What dainty little blooms. I did not know this plant had blooms! Thanks for the pictures and have a good day.

I remember my aunt had one of those. It's very dainty looking.

I LOVE asparagus ferns. One time I carried a 15# asparagus fern on the airplane from WA ST to MD. They even gave 'her' a seat all by 'herself' on the plane. Everyone marveled at 'her' size & beauty. TTFN ~Marydon

I have never seen this before - I do like those little blooms on it!

Well see, I just learned something new. All those years in the garden centre, and never saw one bloom.

That's really pretty. I used to have an asparagus fern but it must have been a different type. It had flatter leaves more like shamrocks. Very hard to keep moist and it didn't survive.

I do not have that fern right now but I have in the past and love its delicate foliage.

Oh, that is very pretty. I used to have an asparagus fern as well, but it eventually died. Yours is lovely and I love the little blooms.

We spent the day at Mammoth Springs, AR, and I took lots of beautiful pictures of flowers and the spring and the river. Beautiful day for it, too.

Happy Tuesday, Patsy.

I used to hang asparagus ferns from my front porch, they were always such a pretty shade of green. I may try them again next year, just for a bit of a change.

I've got one of these too. It's a lot younger than yours though, maybe one year old. I keep it on the covered patio. The feathery fronds are so delicate and pretty....and the color lovely too.
