But it is also the best mixture for splendid summer butterfly gardens. (It is not necessary to sear these cut stems in hot water like other varieties of Asclepias.) Hardy annual. Summer-fall flowering. Height: 24"-30".

  • Information
  • Asclepias curassavica. Best started indoors 8 to 10 weeks before transplanting out after the last spring frost date, the Blood Flower thrives in full to part sun in most soils. Hummingbird- and butterfly-loved, it yields a profusion of little clustered flowers and long, pointed green leaves. Eventually, spindly pods magically launch seeds in fluffy white parachutes. Bee friendly. Deer resistant. Hardy annual. Summer to fall flowering. Height: 24" to 30".

    Average seed life: 1 to 2 years.
