I agree -- appears to be an "asparagus fern" ( perhaps Asparagus setaceus or Asparagus plumosus ... I think the former name is considered correct). As the common name suggests, it is not truly a fern but rather a member of the genus Asparagus.

Does anybody know if the tips are edible?? have a patch on a fence that got away from me and the more you trim it the more it grows. Look exactly like asparagus just much smaller. Thanks gary
