Asparagus officinalis L. ??
Gardener say it s not edible.

Yes to me also appear close to images at Asparagus officinalis L.  as per comparative images at Asparagus 

Only confusion is it is not edible.



Requesting to please ID this plant captured at the flower show, Mumbai in February 2013.

Looks like an Asparagus..

Is this Asparagus officinalis then?

Asparagus species in efi 

Asparagus virgatus Baker

May I request you for posting high resolution images to check the details.
I think it may come out to be Asparagus officinalis L. , which is commonly cultivated in India as an ornamental plant as per details at Asparagus
Asparagus virgatus, on the other hand, is not reported as per details at Asparagus

Please find attached hi-res images.
Hope this would help in nailing the ID.
