A view over a patch (45cm diameter), of Wild Asparagus , towards St Margaret's Island.
Wild Asparagus , is a coastal plant that grows in a handful of counties in the UK,
including Pembrokeshire, Glamorgan ,Cornwall and Dorset.
The plants are ‘dioecious’, with male and female flowers occuring on different plants. Insects pollinate the flowers.
When populations become too small, and there is only one sex present, or they
become too scattered, pollination is difficult. This limits population growth.
A project to conserve and increase the number of plants in the UK is underway,
involving the National Trust, the Countryside Council for Wales,
the National Botanic Garden of Wales and Natural England .
