Quite a hidden gem of the woods, this milkweed grows in part shaded, dry locations, usually at the edge of forests. In mid-summer, elegant clusters of white to pale lavender very fragrant flowers become a magnet for pollinators; they’ll be followed by the usual milkseeds pods.
Good around the edges of the woodland garden or in any part-shade location. Like any other milkweed it serves as a larval host for Monarch butterflies – one can never have too many milkweeds around!
Germination: best with cold-moist stratification or sown in the fall outdoors.
