I planted asparagus 5/9, spider roots spread, crown up in the center. When will I see the crowns break through the rich soil I have planted them in? Is that germination?

It sounds like you planted crowns, which means that there will be no germination. Germination would be when asparagus seeds sprout.
When you plant crowns, you are planting a dormant plant and you are waiting for them to break their dormancy. It can take 2-8 weeks for this to happen. Extra water and warmer weather will help this along faster.
