Our orange hibiscus is blooming its heart out and one stem is reaching for the sky.
the Asparagus' Fern is climbing the stem reaching for the sky,
Each photo has those things that look like barbwire growing off the hibiscus.
that is The Fern a.k.a. Barbwire Fern.
The plant Fern Leaf Plumosus Asparagus Fern is sold on Amazon, and many other places.
It is used in flower arrangements and as a house plant.
Prior to this post, I just called it Mommies fern. My dad's mother kept pots of this fern on her porch and inside during the winter.
Say a silly woman, moves in a house 32 years ago, and receives a gift of a
dish garden with beautiful fern in it, decides to plant it in the ground,
Think Tropics, year round growing.
It will strangle everything it touches and climb as high as Jack's Beanstalk.
It will strangle everything, it will wrap around your ankles and wrists and cut like barb wire.
In our house it is known as the Plant Strangling Barbwire Plant.
