Asparagus virgatus

Asparagus virgatus is a bushy, well-branching foliage plant, with an upright habit. This Asparagus has tiny, soft thread-like leaves arranged like little brooms at the stems. Asparagus virgatus is native to eastern and southern Africa, where it grows as an evergreen perennial shrub in shady understorey spots in tropical and subtropical areas. It is mainly grown for cut foliage production. Asparagus virgatus is commonly known as Tree fern or Broom asparagus. Other internationally used common names are: Tiki fern, African broom fern, makkatdoring, katstertjie; ibutha, ihabiya, iphinganhloya, unwele. Evanthia has Asparagus virgatus starting material available all year round, as seed and young plants from seed. Ask our team for the Asparagus cultivation manual for commercial production.
