Jewel milkweed. Name of this flower almost picks itself. The bloom looks as tho it's holding a diamond in an elaborate setting. 5/11/16 I carved out a few hours between preparing for a garage sale and a relaxing massage to revisit this milkweed plant. I was not disappointed! While some of the blooms are beginning to fade, this bloom stood out among the others. This time I remembered to smell the flower. Soft aroma but one that has the range of a thousand wildflowers. More understated than a rose while also being more complex.

  • breatheinThat's awesome! Do u have seeds?
  • growmilkweedplantsCollection of seeds for 🤔 non-commercial use may be legal. I need to check the laws about that. It's pollinated primarily by a large 🐝 bumble bee. Let's hope that the plant even gets seeds this year, their not very common. 🦄 @breathein
  • breatheinI'm not interested in commercial use I need these for nonprofit because I build way stations with gradeschool kids please let me know and thank you
  • growmilkweedplantsI never said commercial use. Not even sure I can touch the seeds with a ten-foot-pole.
