Compact Sprenger Asparagus Fern
Asparagus densiflorus 'Sprengeri Compacta'
|Description||A very popular, low-growing perennial for use in hanging baskets, in cut flower arrangements, and as a groundcover. Dense, shiny green, needle-like foliage displayed on arching stems is contrasted by bright red, ornamental berries in fall. Semi-evergreen in mild winter regions; use in containers and overwinter indoors in cold winter regions.|
|Light||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Fast growing; reaches 2 ft. tall, 4 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Houseplant, Ground Cover, Hanging Basket|
|Design Ideas||This popular mounding ground cover grows fast, its evergreen branches arching as it spreads. So frequently used that it is often overlooked until its bright red berries appear. Provide rich contrast to its needle-like leaves by planting dark-green, broad-leafed plants adjacent in a small garden. In a hanging basket or container, include a bright flowering plant or one that is taller and straighter to balance the form.|
|Foliage Color||Light Green|
|Companion Plants||Lantana (Lantana); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Cordyline (Cordyline); Mandevilla (Mandevilla); Plumbago (Plumbago)|
|Care||Thrives in enriched, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Avoid harsh, hot afternoon sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, prefers regular moisture, but tolerates mild drought. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded stems. Tolerates mild frost.|
|Lore||Though it is called a fern, this plant is not related in any way to that spore-bearing primitive group.|
