Asclepias Silky Mix

Asclepias curassavica

Vary your Monarch Butterfly caterpillars diet!

Colourful & more ornamental than the standard Swan Plant.



This one has been out of stock with our suppliers for a couple of seasons. Definitely a nice addition to the garden to attract the Monarch Butterflies; more colourful and ornamental than the standard Swan Plant, but just as tasty to the butterflies!

Ensure children wash hands after touching this plant as the milky liquid inside the stems can be toxic if rubbed into eyes.
