Rose Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata)

I promised I would send out the information of the Rose Milkweed that we gave away at district meeting and here it is.

We still have a few of these large plants left if anyone is interested in purchasing them for $10. They are in a 1 gallon pot. (902) 832-7006 For those who have them, just a reminder, they do need to be hardened off.
