Asparagus Officinalis ‘Mary Washington’
Pot size BR Pkg of 5, #1
A perennial vegetable that produces edible shoots or ‘spears’ that are harvested in spring; let foliage stand over winter to insulate crowns and manufacture food for a better crop, cut back in spring; fusarium resistant, enrich soil with compost.
The “Mary Washington” asparagus, known as Asparagus Officinalis, is a heritage variety and one of the older and more common asparagus varieties.
This plant is quite ornamental as well as edible, and is as much at home in a landscape or flower garden as it is in a designated edibles garden. It does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in rich soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.
