No, it's a great nutritional food source.
Bracken ferns are not poisonous to humans but they are poisonous to animals.
Holly berries are in fact poisonous to humans but not animals. Holly however is not poisonous but will not be very nice to eat! If you do so happen to eat holly berries tell s…omeone IMMEDIATLY and then go to see your local doctor. But whatever you do don't panic! Just remain calm!
Yes, they devoured mine along with everything else in yard, and the wild asparagus growing in my fields near the house. They even ate the horseradish. Out of control, I'm hopi…ng i can bring it back.
Contact with berries, branchlets or spines can cause poison oak-like rash after touching asparagus fern so it is possible that stickers may or may not need to be removed. …Specifically, the plant in question ( Asparagus spp ) has inedible berries which may provoke abdominal pains, diarrhea, upset stomach and vomiting in those who react to the fern's body parts. The foliage sports needle-like branchlets in the nodes and spines in branch axils. A poison oak-like reaction will require medical attention.
The scientific or taxonomic name would be Asparagus densiflorus (Sprengeri group).
Glyphosate will kill asparagus ferns ( Asparagus aethiopicus , A. densiflorus , A. sprengeri ). Specifically, glyphosate is the active ingredient in Round-Up. A particular…ly effective treatment is 1 percent solution of glyphosate to 0.25 percent surfactant. Follow-up treatments may be needed before the asparagus fern population is removed totally from the landscape. Generally, weed problems may be solved by an attack plan of constant cutting down to the ground, controlled burning, and glyphosate. The initial reaction to the cutting initially may be vigorous regrowth. But the constant cutting is a stress that wears away at the plant in question. Also, specifically in terms of the asparagus fern, it helps to remove as much of the root system as possible. As is the case with herbaceous and woody plants, growth begins from the roots.
They aren't ferns at all! Asparagus "ferns" are actually slightly woody evergreen plants that belong to the order Asparagales (genus Asparagus and Protoasparagus), and are of…ten sold as ornamental plants, but are also considered an invasive weed in many parts of the United States and Australia. They are native to South Africa and are called "asparagus ferns" because, from a distance, they do sort of look like ferns. "Asparagus ferns" are mostly drought tolerant plants that have an extensive network of storage roots. The produce small white flower during the summer months, the fruits measure between 3 and 4mm in diameter and turn black on maturity.

Yes ofcourse they even like peoples! (true)
If the asparagus ferns are yellowing after a frost, then you can cut them during your fall cleanup. Here in Georgia, mine stay green unless we have a really bad winter. I d…on't remove them until I start getting the garden ready for spring planting which is sometime in mid-winter.
