Wild Asparagus Berries

Nature Walks

There is a planting in my area where, at some point, somebody planted asparagus among the normal decorative flowers. It fits in very well with the rest of the plants and provides tall, frond-ly delicate branches to the background among hostas and other perennials. I have no idea if anyone harvests the asparagus any more, as most of the locals let their dogs go to the bathroom right along that area. I was lucky enough to walk by when the asparagus had berries! I have not grown asparagus before this year, and my own asparagus is quite small. I had no idea it had such bright little berries!
