Golden Milkweed


Asclepias curassavica “Silky Gold”

Every year in the spring I start waiting for the milkweeds to bloom, and every year they won’t bloom for me in the spring. I have to wait for summer! That’s not fair.

Here we have the less popular gold colored milkweed. They’re also called Butterflyweed because they attract butterflies.

This cultivar has very green leaves to go with the deep gold flowers. The leaves darken up a bit in full sun. As far as perennials go, it’s adequate.
