Very resistant to asparagus rust. Prefers healthier soils that are loose and amended with organic matter. Hardy to Zone 3b. Description: Asparagus is a hardy perennial. It is the only common vegetable that grows wild along roadsides and railroad tracks over a large part of the country. Although establishing a good asparagus bed requires considerable work, your efforts will be rewarded. A well-planned bed can last from 20 to 30 years. For this reason, asparagus should be planted at the side or end of the garden, where it will not be disturbed by normal garden cultivation. Asparagus is one of the first vegetables ready to harvest in the spring. Asparagus is native to the Mediterranean and was eaten by the ancient Greeks.

Add well balanced compost or amend with lime and fertilizer before establishment. Hardiness zones: 2a to 8b Lifecycle: Perennial Ease-of-care: Easy to Moderate (Site and grower dependent) Height: For harvest: 6 to 18 inches, unharvested 5 to 9 feet
