Foxtails of Verdant Color
Foxtail Fern, Aspragus densiflorus 'Myers', is an evergreen perennial with distinctive features. Plant several for a unique border along your perennial bed, or even just one for some uncommon beauty and texture in your yard. Foxtail Fern would even do well in a hanging planter on your patio or as a houseplant indoors.
Your Foxtail Fern is a delightful fern variety unlike any you have ever seen. This unique evergreen fern features mounds of delightfully fluffy “foxtails” reaching up and out from the plant’s center. The foliage consists of long, light green plumes of soft, needled leaves. The effect is a mound of vibrant, fuzzy foliage that will not only draw your eye but add one-of-a-kind texture to your landscape.
For an added benefit, delicate blossoms (of a diminutive nature), appear densely peppered amid the stems in mid-summer, a lovely pristine white amid the green foliage. The blossoms transition to green berries that turn a brilliant red for fall, and offer a tasty treat for your feathered friends.
Foxtail Ferns will grow up to 2 feet tall with a 3-foot spread. It’s an easy perennial to care for and is drought and seaside tolerant. It’s adaptive to a variety of conditions and even deer tend to pass it by.
