Asclepias incarnata 'Ice Ballet' is a fantastic variety that is extremely attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. The white flowers bloom in midsummer to early fall. After the flowers have finished blooming interesting seed pods are produced that when opened expose seeds with long, silvery-white, silky hairs. The milkweeds are very important food sources for both larval and adult butterflies, making them some of the most sought-after plants here in our garden center! U.S. native.

    Wonderful hardy plants ... received in the spring and planted to conceal an egress window ... would highly recommend Romence Gardens for wonderful hardy plants. Did not disappoint ??????
