Asparagus cochinensis, commonly called Asparagus, is a member of the Asparagacaea family.

Mainly found in Japan, it also grows throughout East Asia, China, Korea, Laos, Vietnam and the Philippines. The plants grow mostly on slopes from sea level – 1700 metres and by roadsides and waste fields. Flowering in the months of May and June, the root is harvested when the plant is dormant and is dried for later use
