The Foxtail Fern is an arching evergreen plant with cylindrical leafy stems sprouting directly from the ground. It forms a mound of green about 2 feet tall and up to 4 feet wide, with a unique, exotic look. Small white flowers become pea-sized red berries by fall. It can be grown outdoors all year in hot zones, or during summer elsewhere, and then overwintered indoors, or grown as a permanent houseplant. Either way it’s easy to grow and attractive, and a great addition to your garden or houseplant collection.

  • Arching branches of emerald-green stems
  • Small white flowers followed by bright-red berries
  • Great choice for growing beneath trees or in partial shade</li
  • Valuable garden plant for summer or year-round in hot zones
  • Attractive houseplant for a bright spot indoors

The Foxtail Fern is very adaptable, growing well in full sun, partial shade or light full shade. It is hardy to zone 9, or you can grow it as a houseplant with the option of summers outdoors. It grows in any well-drained soil, and it’s surprisingly drought resistant once established. Pests or diseases are rare, and it doesn’t need much attention at all. The berries can make people or pets sick, if eaten.
