OTHER: The Spider Milkweed is native to the US & has big showy 3 - 5" clusters of flowers. The flowers are a beautiful & unique combination of white & purple on green. This milkweed tolerates drought & rocky or sandy soil. It can be grown under normal garden conditions, or pasture and prairie type settings with dry or poor soil.
In addition to being beautiful, Milkweed is a very important plant because it is a host for the beloved MONARCH butterfly. Monarch larva feed exclusively on Milkweeds. That means if there is no Milkweed, there would be no Monarchs :( It is also an important nectar plant for bees including honey bees as well as other insects.
The common name Milkweed was given to this plant because of its milky juice. The scientific name comes from Asclepius, the Greek god of healing, because of the many folk-medicinal uses for the milkweed plants. The dried seed pods are also very interesting for dried arrangements, & are the inspiration for another of their names, Antelopehorn.
