These are our second year milkweeds, the hardest variety - Asclepias tuberosa.
Please plant milkweed for the monarchs! Monarch butterflies need milkweed to lay their eggs in for an immediate source of food once the young caterpillars emerge. This milkweed blooms in prolific crown of gold, and stays relatively compact at just 1-1.5 ft tall. Pleurisy root is so called because it is traditionally thought to help loosen bronchial secretions and help with respiratory infections.
