Description

Asclepias Ice Ballet

A recent selection of a native North American wildflower. This forms a tall, upright clump of long green leaves, bearing clusters of white vanilla-scented flowers in mid-summer that are a magnet to butterflies! Certain species of butterfly also lay their eggs specifically on this plant, which the larvae use for food. Useful in the perennial border or wildflower meadow, and very easy. Seedpods are used in dried arrangements – pick these just before they open. Fresh flowers are also cut, the ends of the stems must be seared over a flame to stop the sap from running.
