We found a number of plants on the grassy banks although we appeared to be too late for the flowers as we only found fruit.
Insight into Wild Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis ssp. prostratus): native but only very local in south west England, it is endangered and found on rocky sea cliffs and sand-dunes.
It grows lying along the ground with stems reaching 30cm.
It is suggested it may be a separate species to Garden Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis spp. officinalis) rather than a subspecies.
