My Plumosas are 3 years old. This one has bloomed twice now from heavy rain in late September. I grow in medium shade spring through summer and winter them in the greenhouse. Picture taken on 10/5/2002 zone 7 Atlanta, GA.
Black Skipper on Plumosa Fern
This Asparagus Plumosa Fern is growing on a rock as a bonsai. In a miniature setting, the Plumosa looks very convincingly like the trees growing in the mountains of Japan. Great plant for shohin bonsai.
This is a plumosa fern that has been in my family for about 55 years. My uncle had it for many years but I don't think he was aware it was a climber (he cut them off,I guess)! He moved to Florida and didn't want to take it so he gave it to me and I kept my fingers crossed that I wouldn't kill it. It was in desperate need of repotting and I cleaned out the dead foliage as well. As you can see, it is now one happy plant! Hopefully, "Fernie" will last another 50 years!
Over 30 yo Asparagus Fern, saved from the trash when people moved. Loves sun! Water only when plant is dry, and then over water. Divides well. I've got 2 cats, and neither has been poisoned by it. 4 feet across in dimension after dividing it last spring, 2003.
This was purcased at Walmart. Help with care would be appreciate. It will be kept indoors
Plumosa Hanging Basket

The feathery foilage of this viny, fern-like plant up close.
It grew big for 43 yrs in same spot to keep cool
I have not seen signs of being invasive. I've had it for a few years and it has been well behaved.
This photo includes the minute white flowers which grow on their own stalk.

I've repotted this fern three times. I started it from a 3 inch pot back in 2009, I believe it was.
Brought in for the Winter. 10-07-12. I could have held out longer by covering it with a sheet at night.
