Asparagus Family Asparagaceae


A real mixed bag of species but all members of the same family. Some may look as though they would be more at home in other families, the bluebell in the bellflowers for example. Some of the family are 'normal' fleshy species whilst others are woody. Be prepared for the unexpected!
