It’s hard to resist the urge to touch the delicate fronds of this graceful Asparagus Fern! The slender stems are shrouded in the finest foliage that gives it a soft, fluffy appearance, but take care as they can develop thorns over time. Asparagus setaceus is instantly alluring, adding a calm and restful feel to any brightly-lit indoor space. Its fresh green foliage is at its best when grown well away from the scorch of hot, direct sunlight. A superb house plant for a bright north facing room. Height: 1m (39"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.
