Asparagus densiflorus 'Nana'

SKU
03030
Exceptionally dense and fine-textured, needle-like, bright green foliage wraps the short, sturdy, upright stems, creating a neatly formed, compact plant for containers, borders, and edging. Its unique appearance is excellent for use as a softening contrast for bold-textured and bold-colored plants. Evergreen.
