It has delicate leaves that resemble ferns, which are thin and wiry, and are green in color. These leaves grow in an elegant, arching pattern, giving the plant a lacy and graceful appearance. Asparagus setaceus can be grown as a houseplant or can be used as a decorative element in flower arrangements.
