Asparagus acutifolius L.
Genus : Asparagus

Catalan common name : Espareguera de ca. Espareguera fonollera. Espareguera rucÓ. Esparreguera borda. Esparreguera de garriga. Esparreguera punxosa.
Spanish common name : Esparrago amarguero. Esparraguera silvestre. Esparraguera triguera.

General distribution : Mediterranean
Flowering time : August. September.
Life-forms : Chameophyte. Phanerophyte.
Habitat : Rare in pine woodlands. Forets and garriques.
Uses and properties : Edible or foodstuffs. Medicinal.
IUCN Category : Poco preocupante

Characteristics : This asparagus can be distinguished from the others because of the great quantity of small, dark green cladodes that cover practically all of the plant; it often adopts the behaviour of a small climbing plant. It lives in cool, shady places, but can quite possibly coincide with other species of asparagus in the same places. It flowers at the end of summer.
