Also called Foxtail Fern, Asparagus densiflorus ‘Myers’ is a familiar and attractive texture to add to a landscape.  Bright green stems rise 2 – 3 feet up from tubers just below the surface of the soil.  Tiny white flowers appear from late spring to mid summer, depending on the local climate.  The white flowers eventually develop into bright red berries in the fall, almost like little ornaments.  Plant Asparagus ‘Meyers’ as an accent in beds, in hanging baskets, or as a very unusual and striking mass planting.
