Asparagus have beautiful featherly green leaves in Summer after the Spring spears have been left unharvested. It only grows in the warm summer months and becomes dormant in winter. The crowns need about two years to grow strong enough to produce sizeable spears, but can be harvested after that for many years. They need a cold winter and cool spring for best production.
