Asparagus is actually a perennial (a plant that lives for more than two years), spring or fall, flowering plant. It thrives in maritime habitats and can survive in soils that are too saline for weeds to grow. Crowns of asparagus are planted in the winter and your first shoots will appear in the spring. When you first start harvesting, those small shoots are often referred to as "thinnings" or sprue.
