Asparagus densiflorus (herb)
The University of Florida (2002) has gathered the following information on A. densiflorus: "Cold hardy to -1°C (30°F) (Broschat and Meerow 1991). Thrives in any well-drained soil (Stresau 1986). Grows in low to high light conditions, has low nutrient requirements, and tolerates drought (Broschat and Meerow 1991). A. densiflorus is also noted as having "good" salt tolerance (Hunt 1977).”
The Asparagus Weeds Best Practice Management Manual offer some best practice management advice on the management and control of Asparagus weeds. The first section of this manual contains practical information on how to develop a weed management plan and is aimed at land managers who may be embarking on a new project or tackling a weed incursion for the first time. The sections that follow consist of identification and management information for individual Asparagus weed species including Asparagus asparagoides, A. declinatus, A. scandens, A. aethiopicus (=A. densiflorus) and A. africanus.
