Product Description

Grow Heirloom Bloodflowers / Sunset Flowers - Plant Bloodflower / Sunset Flower Seeds

A unique and stunning Asclepias variety – Bloodflower or Sunset Flower – is a highly cherished North American native wildflower. Its leaves and pollen are essential food sources to migrating Monarch Butterflies and their larvae, as well as other winged friends. Lesser known perhaps, but more colorful than its cousin, Asclepias tuberosa Butterfly Milkweed. Covering itself with gorgeous flowers of orange, yellow and red in midsummer, Bloodflower/Sunset Flower is a real dazzler in any wild garden.
