Asparagus sprengeri 'Graham's Cracker' is a truly superb introduction from NC gardener Graham Ray, who shared this gem for us to trial. Asparagus 'Graham's Cracker' makes a very tight, very upright 15" tall x 15" wide clump...a splendid rock garden specimen. In addition, Asparagus 'Graham's Cracker' is far more winter hardy than any selection of Asparagus sprengeri that we've ever seen, surviving for decades in Graham's Greensboro, NC garden. For us, Asparagus 'Graham's Cracker' is tardily deciduous, turning a beautiful shade of gold before going dormant, but it should remain evergreen in warmer climates.
