Excerpt: Asparagus racemosus (Satavar, Shatavari, or Shatamull) is a creeper, 1 to 2 meters tall, that is common throughout India and the Himalayas. It prefers to take root in gravelly, rocky soils, high up in piedmont plains (1,300 - 1,400 meters elev.).

It was botanically described in 1799. Satavar has odd little pine-needle-like leaves that are uniform, and shiny green. In July it has minute, white flowers on short, spiky stems, and in September it fruits blackish-purple, globular berries. It has an adventitious root system with tuberous roots that measure about 1 meter in length, tapering at both ends, and may, for each plant number roughly a hundred. The roots are used in Ayurvedic medicine, following a regimen of processing and drying, with the name of Shatavari.
