Trim asparagus and cut into 1-inch pieces.

Melt butter in heavy large saucepan over medium heat.

Add leek and potato; saut 2 minutes.

Add broth; bring to boil.

Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.

Simmer uncovered until asparagus is just tender, 5 to 6 minutes (depending on thickness of stalks).

Remove pan from heat.

Transfer 8 asparagus tips to small bowl for garnish.

Working in batches, puree soup in blender until smooth.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Divide soup among 4 shallow bowls.
