ASPARAGUS VERTICILLATUS

$3.66 / packet

Description

This newly-discovered, rare, bone-hardy to Zone 3 (USA), bizarre and absolutely amazing climbing asparagus, (to 15feet/5m tall), has glossy green foliage covered in fragrant white flowers in late spring, and in late summer it is smothered with 1/2" bright red berries. The beautiful ferny foliage stays green, even into quite severe frost, serving as a perfect foil for the red berries. Any sturdy trellis or unsightly fence is perfect for supporting it. A unique and unforgettable gem in the garden, there is unfortunately, only the barest information about this plant.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
