Asparagus setaceus, or 'Asparagus fern' is a fern in name and appearance only.
It belongs to the family "Liliaceae" and is a relative of lilies, including tulips, daylilies, amaryllis, and hostas.
This plant has a rich history in Ireland and was traditionally used as buttonhole corsages for special occasions. Today, however, asparagus ferns adorn homes as one of the most popular indoor plant choices.
