    All Asparagus species send up shoots. Shown in the above photos are what look like seedlings. Asparagus officinalis, Edible Asparagus, may take a couple years of cultivation before it produces shoots like you see in a grocery store.

    I had no idea there were so many types of asparagus (the wikipedia site Metrosideros cited). But doesn’t garden asparagus first send up a shoot that is what we put on our plates to eat? The picture resembles a pine seedling, not an asparagus shoot. Does the plant have to develop a year or two before it produces shoots?

    That looks right. Need it to mature to see what type. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asparagus_(genus)
