What`s about setaceus? Could it be another name for the same plant?

I did not understood your question GH?
Tiny cladodes = tiny leaves compared to the other species of Asparagus.

Setaceaous = satin-like = ??

That seems to be the very common, ornamental, pot-grown asparagus, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asparagus_plumosus.

And yes, sometimes it gets out of the pot and is found in semi-shade such as under carob trees... it's 100% identified as I have them at home. The seeds grow easily in fact I am always removing them immediately they sprout as removing an established plant from the same pot as another plant is nearly impossible, the roots intertwine completely.
