Asparagus plumosus is native to Southern Africa, and is grown elsewhere as an ornamental plant. Asparagus is a scrambling perennial herb with tough green stems, which may reach several meters in length. The leaves are actually leaf-like cladodes up to 7 mm long by 0.1 mm in diameter, which arise in clumps of up to 15 from the stem, making a fine, soft green fern-like foliage. Occurring from spring to autumn, the small greenish-white bell-shaped flowers are 0.4 cm long, and are followed by small green berries, which blacken with maturity.

Perfect to grow indoors as tropical houseplant or in a greenhouse.
