Product Details

Product Details

A genuine star whose unusually dense clusters of pale pink flowers open from dark pink buds. The vanilla-scented flowers last well in water and attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Plants are deer resistant and heat tolerant, too.

Of the 200 species in the genus Asclepias, the best known are North American wildflowers. They have small, curiously shaped blooms that appear in dense clusters. These plants provide nourishment for Monarch butterflies through all their life stages, and are essential for their survival.

For more information on the growing and care of Asclepias, click Growing Guide.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

White Flower Farm

A viewer from CONNECTICUT

Words cannot describe my disappointment once again with WFF, but todays shipment can only describe as a joke. The Meyer lemon I ordered some years ago came with one lemon on it and has not fruited since. The Clivia (sp) ordered about the same time has never bloomed, although it seems to be going ok. Have to leave you, but take me off your mail list as I do not want to be tempted again. If you can provide a refund, please do so.

I am sorry you have been displeased with the plants you have received from White Flower Farm Ellen and I will be contacting you directly via email regarding compensation for the Asclepias and the cultural requirements for the Meyer Lemon tree and Clivia.
Sincerely,
Cathy

Tall, beautiful flowering plant that attracts Monarchs.

A viewer from Granville, MA

I bought one of these plants and last year it not only attracted butterflies, but Monarchs. We had several chrysallis' on the plant, and then got to see the gorgeous butterflies soon after they hatched. I am ordering a couple more with hopes of attracting more of these georgeous butterflies. Also ~ this weathered beautifully. Nothing but good to say about this plant!

Plant near a Chain Link Fence

A viewer from Baltimore

When I planted my milkweed near a chain link fence in 2018, I had an amazing number of chrysalis form on the fence (the caterpillars simply crawled from the milkweed onto the fence). In August and September we witnessed the full cycle of the monarch butterfly.. green chrysalis to clear chrysalis just before butterfly emerges to seeing the butterfly emerge and finally fly to nearby nectar plants (tithonia mexican sunflowers were covered in butterflies) It was an amazing sight and I will repeat this process in 2019. Yes, I took a million pictures. You will be amazed!!!

Fantastic Plant

A viewer from Northern Indiana

My wife planted our milkweed in a swampy area on our property in full sun. We had flowers this year and a few monarch butterflies. We have ordered more plants for fall planting. We had tried seeds, but these from White Flower Farm grew quickly and attracted butterflies already this summer. We have a lot of nectar plants on the property too. Thanks!

Latin Name Pronunciation: uh-sklee'pee-us  

This genus, commonly known as Milkweed, consists of many North American native species, and is most notable for attracting butterflies. Their flowers are excellent nectar sources, and the plants are important hosts for the larval stage of the Monarch butterfly. Use Asclepias in pollinator gardens, sunny borders, and meadows.

Asclepias grows best planted in full sun and well-drained soil (sandy soil is ideal). Since some perennial Milkweed varieties are among the last to emerge from dormancy in spring, mark their location so you don't plant something on top of them.
