Details

Not actually a fern, this vivid member of the asparagus family is a gorgeous accent plant for container groupings or staging among tropicals. This beautiful fern is easy to grow and, some say, more decorative than its close relative, the asparagus fern. An evergreen shrub with needle like stems, its vibrant coloring and distinct spreading stems awaken the garden, contrasting and complementing surrounding foliage.

Also called the Ponytail, Bottle Brush, and Emerald fern, foxtail ferns have an unusual, symmetrical look. These fern-like plants have arching plumes of needle-like leaves that look soft and delicate, which makes the plants appear fragile. Foxtail fern's soft, fluffy foliage maintains an upright appearance, forming a 3- to 4-foot evergreen clump. Arms resembling foxtails or rabbit ears radiate from the center and insignificant white flowers appear in spring, followed by red berries in fall.

Outside, the plant grows well in full sun, with light afternoon shade in hotter climates. Native to the coast, foxtail fern grows well in sea-coast conditions and prefers compost-rich, moderately moist soil. In temperate climates you can plant foxtail fern pretty much year-round. Mulch and water it well after planting to establish strong roots.

The foxtail fern can be showcased in the ground or in pots. It makes a great companion to succulents, an alternative to ornamental grasses or a way to effectively dress up a bare entryway or porch. Its soft texture and distinct form pair well with other waxy foliage plants.
