Mystery HousePlant!! Asparagus Fern

Dear Judy, I recently was at a greenhouse and bought a ‘mystery plant’ from the clearance section. It came with no identification, and I was wondering if you would be able to identify it for me? Thanks, Lisa

Hi Lisa,


Your mystery houseplant looks like an Asparagus Fern. Asparagus Ferns are not true ferns at all but rather members of the Lily Family. The name Asparagus Fern comes from the fact that the new growth resembles tiny asparagus spears.
