Creamy white flowers on 40 inch tall plants. Gorgeous selection of this Eastern North American native. Fragrant flowers are clawed and loved by butterflies. Blooms in midsummer. Nice full plants in a moist sunny location but will tolerate average to dry soils too and some shade. This attractive milkweed also makes an excellent, long lived cut flower. Flowers and seed pods are used in flower arrangements also.  And of course the butterflies are mad about it!   Easy to germinate.
