Milkweed Tropical Asclepias 200 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
An introduced species of the subtropics that has naturalized throughout North America. Considered an annual, easily started from seed. The alluring, bright orange and yellow flower bouquet are concentrated in compact clusters at the top of branching stems. An important nectar source for Monarchs and a wide variety of other butterfly species, pollinators and hummingbirds. Prefers full sun to partial shade and is not extremely temperamental about soil types. Blooms all season, transplants well, deer and rabbit resistant! Suggested Use: Butterfly gardens, meadows, tall borders, disturbed areas. Miscellaneous: The stem, when broken, produces a milky white sap characteristic of this plant family. With age, plants will become woody. Tropical Milkweed can be cut back and will re sprout from the plants base rather quickly.
