Notes for Identification:  the flat fern-like branches are used in floral displays and are almost universally a part of commercial florists' arrangements. A gentleman's boutonniere or a lady's red rose would be naked without a feathery spray of asparagus fern. Asparagus fern's attractive foliage and fine, lacy texture make it a natural for hanging basket plantings. Outdoors in warm climates asparagus fern may spread and become difficult to control.
