Is this a fern?




This foliage is in my garden in several places. When doing a little gardening this week, I noticed it had some beautiful red and green berries. I wish I knew what plant it was. Maybe someone has a clue?

I received a comment which sounds very knowledgeable. The "Germinatrix" reports this fern to be Asparagus densiflora meyersii. Thanks for your input.

I think it could be an asperagus fern?

That's a good guess. Maybe in its family. I will take another picture because it is a long conical stem which you cannot really see in this picture.

It's Asparagus densiflora 'Meyersii' - a fabulous plant that is in many older Southern California gardens - it really deserves another look from younger gardeners. I love it and use it whenever I can!
