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 Fern is 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.

If you love ferns but would like something that's unusual, then Foxtail Fern is the fern for you! Gorgeous evergreen color, lush texture and delightful eye-catching form make this an ideal fern for your home. Calculate into its assets the flowers and berries, and you have a fern that is not only stunning but useful to your wildlife as well. Try one today!
