$8.00Price
Asclepias verticillata forms colonies of roots from underground rhizomes. It loves sun and reasonably well drained soil.It is an important late-season bloomer and source of food for caterpillars and Monarchs. At season’s end, foliage develops yellow fall color. Seed pods split when ripe and release many seeds that will drift as most milkweed plants do. Expect volunteers in the spring. If that is a problem, remove the seed pods before they fully mature.It is another one of our offerings selected for its unpalatability to deer and rabbits!Warning: Asclepias verticillata is poisonous to livestock and horses and should be diligently eradicated from pastures and other farm grazing areas. Interesting Notes:For more information on this plant, visit the USDA PLANTS Database: http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=ASVE
