Foliage:

Also called lace fern, climbing asparagus, or ferny asparagus. Despite its common name, the plant is not a true fern. The feathery, rich green foliage has a very soft texture and a light, airy appearance. Great for all kinds of containers, including window boxes, hanging baskets and combination planters. An easy-to-grow plant that tolerates changes in watering frequency and is very low maintenance. Protect from harsh afternoon sun.

It is native to Southern Africa.
