Ferns: A Surprising Plant for all Kinds of Weather

Whenever I plant pots for people I have a few thing I keep in mind.

• What is the sun and wind exposure?
• What colors and fluff do we need in the space?
• Will anyone water?
• Will this be deer food?
• How many times will I have to change out the pot to have something pretty all year?

The good old asparagus fern is a terrific option for footing the bill for hot, fluffy, evergreen, drought tolerant, deer proof, and pretty all year.

You will probably want to add with flowers, berries, pumpkins and pansies to give it a bit more flair.

Here is the asparagus fern it this changeable winter weather!
