Wild Asparagus

Asparagus officinalis

Leave a Comment

Flowers yellow, small, 3 or 6-petaled.

This is the same species as garden asparagus and probably an escape, although growing wild. Note the thin, needlelike leaves and the paired bell-like pale yellow-green flowers hanging from the leaf axils. The overall plant can grow to 4-5 feet.
