Asparagus macowanii 'Ming Fern'- is a slow growing perennial. Despite its name, the ming fern is a flowering plant and not a fern at all. A native to arid regions of South Africa, this is a very drought tolerant plant.
This exquisite evergreen fern grows from 4 to 6 feet tall with a spread of 3 to 5 feet, but can also be grown in containers to achieve a much smaller plant. Thrives in part sun to shade, can do well in full sun. Makes for an excellent plant in decorative containers on patio, balcony, or houseplant: great for bonsai plants as well.
Leaves are evergreen and plant growth is shrub like, produces small white flowers in spring and to early summer. Hardiness to zones 8 and higher.
