Floral Friday ~ Asclepias
MILKWEED | BUTTERFLY WEED
Summer lovin’ asclepias. They are available in pink, white, orange and yellow through our Holland webshop. We also carry the green Gomphocarpus physocarpus pods (aka hairy balls, balloon plant). Our warehouses stock a limited amount so it’s best to preorder your stems for wedding and daily design work.
After cutting your asclepias, we recommend placing in a separate bucket or vase with flower food first before adding with other flowers due to the stem’s milky secretion.
Did you know? Milkweed is important if for no other reason than the fact that the Monarch butterfly only lays its eggs on Milkweed plants, and the Monarch caterpillar only eats the leaves of the Milkweed plant. uswildflowers.com
