(aka: Protasparagus microraphis) Asparagus microraphis is another amazing South African ornamental asparagus species that's shown both amazing garden value and winter hardiness. Asparagus microraphis, hails from humid, rocky mountain slopes in Transvaal, Natal, Lesotho, Eastern Cape, and the Orange Free State. In the garden, Asparagus microraphis behaves as a large deciduous perennial forming a 2' tall x 12' wide, sprawling specimen. If space is a consideration, Asparagus microraphis takes well to a fence or trellis. The dense stalks of dark green, soft-textured foliage are adorned with hundreds of small white flowers in early May (NC), which are followed by developing red berries. Asparagus microraphis has survived several years of below 0 F temperatures, unprotected in Western Michigan.
