  Summary APG II
In the flowers, the outer tepal whorl tends to be green outside, and the ovary is inferior; there is often a narrowly tubular part of the tepal or an apical beak to the ovary.
Iridaceae may be recognised by their usually ensiform and equitant isobifacial leaves and their large flowers with showy tepals, three extrorse stamens, complex stigma, and inferior ovary.
Agapanthaceae are rather large, rhizomatous herbs that can be recognised by their rather fleshy and 2-ranked leaves and their scapose umbellate inflorescence of generally large flowers with superior ovaries.

Asparagus is a perennial plant with erect, edible stems and tiny branches that bear even tinier flowers that become red berries that contain the fl Asparagus seed.
Formerly in the Liliaceae family, botanists have realized that Asparagus is in a class by itself and have repositioned its 120 species in the Asparagaceae genus.
Asparagus is a high-end gourmet food item, but if you know how to grow asparagus, it becomes an inexpensive way to add a delicate flavor to your meals.

Kocyan and Endress (2001b) note that the connective is massive, the stamens being supplied by 2-4 "vascular complexes".
Furthermore, as we shall see, there is little morphological support for families or family groupings in the Asparagaceae area in particular.

 Asparagus - ENaturalHealthCenter.com (e2121.com)
Asparagus belongs to the family Asparagaceae with about 300 species; it is native from Siberia to southern Africa.
Related to the lily family, asparagus has a slender green stalk with a distinctive but elusive flavor and a mildly astringent undertone.
Another report says that the plant contains asparagusic acid which is nematocidal (destructive to nematode worms) and is used in the treatment of schistocystis (fissure or crack of the bladder).

Conversely, data from molecular systematics now suggest that Agavaceae should be broadened to include a number of genera previously classified elsewhere, among them Chlorogalum, Camassia and the family Anthericaceae with anything up to 22 additional genera.
The Angiosperm Phylogeny Group's APG II classification nullifies both these proposals by placing Agavaceae, along with a number of other families (including Ruscaceae) in an expanded family Asparagaceae.
However, APG II allows the alternative of keeping some of these families, including Agavaceae, separate, though in this case it recommends expanding the family to include the genera currently classified in Anemarrhenaceae, Anthericaeae (with Anthericum and Paradisea), Behniaceae and Herreriaceae.
