Asparagus falcatus is a variety of asparagus fern with long sickle-like shiny green leaves. It is a robust, vigorous climber with thorns on older, woody stems. It is extremely easy to look after and fast growing. Tiny white flowers appear in late summer which sometimes develop into small, red berries. Asparagus falcatus can be trained to grow up a pole and can reach a height of 3m unless pruned to required height.
Asparagus falcatus is also sometimes known as Sicklethorn. Although it is called a fern, it is actually a member of the lily family.
Due to their vigorous growth habit, Asparagus plants may become pot bound. If required, re-pot during springtime. Trim in winter/early spring to maintain desired size and shape.
Feeling flat! This fern is a climber so if it starts to flop, insert wooden stakes to create a support or climbing frame.
Some steam a day will keep dried leaves at bay! High humidity environments will stop this fern from drying up.
