Spikes of tiny greenish flowers appear from May to Sept. In early spring, pencil-thick shoots push up from the fleshy, branching roots, & these are prized, as a substitute for asparagus. Hardy Perennial, prefers a shady spot, (Originally called Fat Hen as it was used to fatten up the hens), Seed Count Approx - 250 avg

You can sow directly into beds in late spring. Grows in most fairly moist soils & full sun, but will grow in dappled shade.
