Showy Milkweed (Asclepias Speciosa)
Showy Milkweed is a perennial plant that can be easily established by sowing Milkweed seeds. It has up to 36 inch stems and large gray-green oval leaves that can be 5 inches in length. Asclepias Speciosa flowers form on top of the stems and are rounded clusters of rosy-pink flowers. One plant of Showy Milkweed can form a large clump by its spreading rhizomes. The Showy Milkweed plant, like its relative Butterfly Weed, prefers to be grown in full sun. It is quite drought tolerant after its second year of establishment as the root system is not well-established the first year after being sown from flower seed. Showy Milkweed Asclepias Speciosa is an ornamental native wildflower. It's perfect for home landscaping and use in the butterfly garden or prairie meadow, and it attracts hummingbirds as well. Showy milkweed seeds need 30 days of cold stratification.
