Asclepias Butterfly Flower Blend

NZ $4.95

Description


Highly ornamental and will attract the Monarch Butterfly to your garden. The umbel-shaped flower head makes an appealing cut flower with its colour range of Dark Pink, White, Gold, Orange and Red. The stems are rigid but the latex sap needs to be heat sealed if you want to cut them, by dipping the cut end in very hot water for 30 seconds.

Matures second season from transplant.
