Asparagus Climber for ID : Nasik : 171012 : AK-1:  Asparagus climber from our Nasik garden.

Picture taken on 29/11/2011.
This has been in our garden for many years, but unlike other Asparagus plants seen, this is a climber.

I have seen small white flowers occasionally.


Looks like Asparagus racemosus.


Thanks …


This climber, in Delhi, dries up by the end of October and gets covered with lovely fragrant white flowers; and lots of bees come and enjoy its pollen.


Yes, I have seen white flowers on it.

Will observe it more closely in future.

Yellow Satavari (Peeli Satavari) or Nepali Satavari, : 2 posts by 2 authors.

What is Yellow Satavari (Peeli Satavari) or Nepali Satavari, having yellow root.

I spent some time googling Nepali shatavari/ peeli shatavari.

Strangely those mentioning it on their sites seem to be selling it as a product, and few of them do mention the botanical name as “wild Asparagus racemosus” … the irony being they are cultivating it to sell.
Please wait for comments for clarity.
