Asparagus can be evergreen or deciduous perennials or subshrubs, sometimes climbing, with tuberous rootstock. Stems bear both inconspicuous scale-like leaves and larger, leaf-like phylloclades, with small white or pinkish flowers followed by red berries

Gijnlim' is an upright, all male perennial grown for its edible, bright green spears with purple tips from spring to early summer. Once cropping has stopped tall stems develop with airy, feathery foliage

Grow in well-drained soil or raised beds. Avoid frost pockets as spears are tender. See Grow Your Own Asparagus guide
