This study was conducted on the anatomical structure of cladodes of Asparagus species growing in Turkey. Microscopical views of transverse sections from the cladodes of each species were illustrated and photographed. The anatomical structures of cladodes of Asparagus species are quite different from each other. This difference in anatomical structure can be used to identify the species. It has been shown that the characteristic structure of vascular bundles and pith of Asparagus acutifolius L. and A. aphyllus L. subsp. orientalis (Baker) P.H. Davis can be used to differentiate between these often confused species.
