Asclepias

Why Asclepias?

Asclepias have rounded clusters of 30 +/- small, brightly colored flowers on 3 +/- umbels per stem. Because the flowers bloom at different times, they create a wonderful texture and whimsical effect floating just above a bouquet of farm flowers. Excellent vase life, long stems with heavy foliage and bright hues make them a standout by themselves or paired with other, color coordinated, flowers.
