Slim Milkweed

Asclepias linearis

Rounded clusters of small white and green starry flowers emerge from the leaf axils in spring and summer from the seemingly delicate upright to arching stems. Slim Milkweed could easily be confused with Whorled Milkweed and the difference is that Slim has opposite leaves and is rhizomatous whereas Whorled Milkweed of course has whorled leaves and is clump forming. Exclusive to the coastal prairies and prairies of southeastern and southcentral Texas, Asclepias linearis does well in clay soils and in well-drained soils and has been one of the easiest and most reliable species for us to grow and so it should be for gardeners. The flowers provide fodder for Bumblebees and other native bee species and you can expect the foliage to be used by the Monarch, Queen, and Soldier butterfly caterpillars. Item# 11661

Light azure blue falls and standards are accented with darker veining and deep golden yellow bee guides. The Southern Blue Flag, Iris virginica tentatively, is a native of Louisiana but is not an actual Louisiana Iris as we had originally thought as the mother plant was shared with us without a name. We previously offered this as Light Blue Louisina Iris but it has kindly been tentatively identified for us by a Louisiana Iris grower and appears to fit the botanical descriptions. The Southern Blue Flag is just as vigorous and hardy as the Louisiana Irises and will do well under similarly moist to wet to average moist soils in a full to mostly sunny site for optimum vigor and flowering. It can be set in water gardens where the container is just below the water's surface.
