How to Say Milkmaid Asclepias Plant (Milkweed)
Plant Features

The Milkmaid Asclepias Plant bears clusters of creamy white diminutive flowers atop medium-green, strong stems surrounded by spear shaped foliage with lighter green midribs and lacy veining. Also called Swamp Milkweed, this native milkweed perennial is totally un-weed-like and is home to the Monarch Butterfly and other winged beauties, to include the hummingbird. She breaks dormancy late, but be patient; the show is worth the wait.

Comment: I have purchased 4 plants this year all arrived healthy and are growing well. Purchased two plants last year and they are big and beautiful and have already fed 3 monarch butterfly caterpillars and the caterpillars are now in the chrysillas stage. Great plants.

Comment: This was my first purchase with GrowJoy and I am very happy with the plants I received. They were packaged so carefully the Asclepias plants weren't stressed at all. They were a very good size for planting and they were in excellent health. I would order from GrowJoy again.

Comment: I ordered 3 of Asclepias starts and wow, they were much bigger than I was expecting. They have been in the ground a bit now and are doing great! Packaging was superb and I will definitely order again.

Comment: I ordered 4 Milkmaid plants. They came in late May as promised, and was pleasantly surprised at how big and healthy the plants are. I've ordered plants online before, and the quality wasn't as good as GrowJoy sends!
