Plant Features

Purple Passion Asparagus produces large, colorful spears so tender you can eat them right out of the garden! Along with its distinctive coloring, it also offers more sweetness, iron, protein, and vitamin C than green varieties. When cooked, the spears will lose their coloring but not their flavor. Purple Passion is low maintenance, disease resistant, and both cold hardy and heat tolerant, making it an excellent choice for first-time asparagus growers. Ready for some fresh asparagus? Many of our 2 - 3 year-old sized crowns will produce harvestable spears the same year you plant them! 

Included with each order is our all-natural phosphate fertilizer that will get your asparagus crowns growing quickly, along with detailed planting instructions.

Asparagus Crowns Companion Plants: Basil, Parsley, Tomatoes

Purple Passion Asparagus Plant Care Instructions: Spears can be harvested once they are as thick as a pencil. Stop harvesting as the spears become tough and the tops start opening. Leave them grow and fern out for the rest of the year. They can be cut back to the ground after the first hard frost, or it can be done in early spring before the new growth starts.

Nailed it

Great plants

My plants arrived healthy and well packed, well rooted with the new grows. The free shipping offer was great and I could buy a bunch to make a nice patch. They're doing great in the garden and I can't wait to try their flavor!

Purple Passion Plants

I bought these last year also and so I wanted to fill in some bare spots. Lovely flavor and this year they are 4 feet tall.

Purple Passion Asparagus

These arrived in great shape and ready to plant!! I was impressed with the size of the crowns and the minimal, if any, damage during shipping. Excited to get them in the ground! I can't wait for harvest.
