*Notes: Male plants produce better thicker spears so female plants should be removed (female plants produce red poisonous berries). Plants die back every winter and re-sprout every spring. Plants should be grown without interference for the first 2 years to establish a strong root structure, once this is done plants will start producing thick spears that can be cut at ground level as they appear. Plants last 20 years or more.
