Asclepias incarnata ‘Cinderella’
at Digging Dog

Asclepias

Milkweed, Butterfly Weed

A big-time butterfly attraction, particularly for the Monarch at larval stage, this American-born perennial promises an irresistible, long lasting summertime display in a well-drained mixed border or more informal venue. The Butterfly Weed’s showy flowers look exceptional in cut arrangements, either fresh or dried, while its slender seed pods lend decorative accents.

This easily grown floriferous cultivar hosts large, compact rosy pink umbels packed with petite white flowers set in dark red bracts. Sprouting from a sizable taproot, the late-to-emerge noninvasive clump of numerous, erect branching stems celebrates vibrant-looking, vanilla-scented blooms. Selected from the wild species that inhabits Missouri’s swamps and wet meadows, ‘Cinderella’ thrives surprisingly well in drier sites and can escort Baptisia ‘Solar Flare’ or ornamental grasses like Molinia or Panicum.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 3'–4' high x 18"–2' wide; hardy to zone 3.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
