Fern Foxtail

The bright green fluffy foliage spikes add unusual textural contrast to perennial beds, borders and mixed containers. Long, plume-like stems hold soft, needle-like leaves. Meyers develops red berries in fall. A popular choice for hanging baskets and containers but works equally well when planted in mass or used as an edging plant.
