Asparagus


Art: Asparagus by Artist Delilah Smith
Asparagus is a perennial plant native to central and southern Europe, northern Africa and western and central Asia. It is a member of the lily family, which includes plants such as onion, garlic, leeks, turnips, lilies and gladioli. Wild asparagus was loved by the ancient Greeks but it was the Romans who first cultivated it. The Emperor Augustus coined the phrase ‘velocius quam asparagi conquantur’, meaning to do something faster than you can cook asparagus. Julius Caesar first ate it in Lombardy and wanted it served with melted butter. And in the time of King Louis XIV asparagus was dubbed ‘The King of Vegetables’. This painting come matted 14x11 ready to frame
