Asparagus (Ornamental Asparagus)

Asparagus is a broad family not only covering the edible vegetable, but also several pot plants mostly cultivated for their lush evergreen foliage. The Macaronesian and Mediterranean species divide into tall, erect growing shrubs (e.g. Asparagus plocamoides) and short, branching shrubs (e.g. Asparagus horridus). All are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot and should be kept cooler (yet frostfree) in winter with reduced watering.
Sow flat in any rich, well drained, sandy to rocky soil at some 15°C to 25°C throughout the year. Germination is irregular between 4 weeks to 3 months. Keep seedlings especially in winter months in a sunny spot.
7 seeds per package.
