Okay, it's not a fern but they are commonly called asparagus ferns and have been for as long as I can remember due to their often fern like appearances. Myersii is a compact perennial with erect to arching stems that are covered in numerous fine leaves giving a plume like effect, it's truly beautiful for a pretty much green plant. Insignificant, tiny white flowers can sometimes be produced and are followed by red berries. When grown under heated glass the foliage is evergreen but will be killed off by frosts if growing outside. If given a thick winter mulch, a very well drained soil and planted directly in the ground we have been having some success with overwintering these outside down in the South of England. Our experimental plant has now recovered from two winters outdoors with new shoots appearing from the tuberous rootstock in late May. If the ground does not actually freeze and is not waterlogged seems to be the key. Coastal gardens will be a good place to experiment. When growing indoors give it a bright spot but out of direct midday summer sun and plant in a well drained loamy, sandy potting compost. Water freely during the summer months. In winter reduce watering keeping the compost just moist. Feed monthly with a standard balanced liquid fertiliser between April and September. Do not feed in winter. Maximum height and spread is around 50cm. Sent as a young plant in a 9cm pot.
