    It's very hard to tell what this plant actually looks like from the photo. Can you add a description? Does it bloom? Does it die back to the ground every year? How tall does it get?

    It can get as tall as 5 ft. It dies back and then it will send up fronds, like some kind of fern.They are airy like asparagus fern, but different. They must bloom tiny blooms, because they get little green balls sometimes.My camera is kaput, bu will try again with kindle!Thank you!

    This looks like one of the varieties of asparagus ferns, they come in different textures. And you said it grows small white flowers and green berries, very much like my asparagus fern which is an indoor plant in the winter here.

    it is a asparagus macowanii "ming fern". there are many asparagus ferns the most common being asparagus springerii, Asparagus setaceus "plumose fern", and asparagus densiflorus 'meyersii' otherwise known as foxtail fern. but there are 27 distinct varieties of asparagus fern. all of them beautiful in its own way
