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.

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!

It is a great plant to attract Monarchs

Lynnette from Algonquin, IL

I bought a tiny stalk from the local garden center (I live in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago with clay soil) and the next year it was a 7' giant plant with tons of pink blooms. IT IS NOT in the swamp - we have it in the full sun right on highest place in our yard along with coneflowers, black eyed susan, bee balm (I found this needs a little shade so I moved it behind the milkweed to give it some afternoon shade from the sun), and lavender. It does not need s swamp to grow. You will see caterpillars - we counted about 12 the 2nd year. We never saw the chrysalis unfortunately. Warning - you will see and attract a wide variety of bees also. They never hurt us and we saw everything from a tiny green bee to a giant black mud dauber.

Not for me.

A viewer from Arkansas

I bought it for the same reason as the other reviewers, to attract butterflies. All my plant seemed to do was attract aphids.
Last summer was my first year for the plant, it grew tall but was covered in aphids. I tried rinsing them off and I tried smashing them on the stem which resulted in yellow fingers so I finally cut it down. The plant may attract butterflies, but I cannot stand seeing all of those aphids. It was not worth my $13.00.

Monarchs love

Erika from Arkansas

We only had two small blooms our second year (perhaps because the aphids were so aggressive), but we really bought the plants to lure Monarchs to our property. After our first full year, we counted 22 Monarch caterpillars in August (and managed to discover 3 newly emerged butterflies in September before they flew away). This year, we only saw one caterpillar in August, but I have no doubt there were more--we saw at least two female butterflies laying eggs. We just didn't monitor the plants as closely. Fyi--aphids, unfortunately, love this milkweed. Wishing WWF would carry these plants again so we can buy more!

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.
