Product Description

Ming Fern(Asparagus macowanii). Despite its name, the ming fern is a flowering plant and not a fern at all. It produces white flowers in the spring to early summer. It is in the same genus as the edible cultivated perennial vegetable, Asparagus officinalis. Ming Ferns do well in full sun as well as shaded locations. A native to arid regions of South Africa, this is a very drought tolerant plant. It can reach a height of 4-6′ when grown in the ground, but can also be grown in containers to achieve a much smaller plant. It is an excellent house plant.

  • Hardy in zones 9-10, elsewhere patio or indoors
  • Grows up to 24" tall
  • Prefers full sun or light shade. Water when dry.

    Ordered two; both arrived healthy and well-packaged. Now I'm trying to "bonsai" them to look like a grove of trees, even though Ming fern is not a prime bonsai plant. Wish me luck.

    I repotted this about a month after it came because the root stems were bursting out of the pot! It is doing well in its new pot with a little pruning. It looks beautiful and gets many compliments. Everything I ordered from Hirt's was great!

    I ordered a bunch of plants, and even though they arrived a few days late (due to USPS delays) all of the plants arrived in great shape and packaged extremely well! I will definitely order from Hirt's again!
