Milkweed at Countryside Gardens

Milkweed at Countryside Gardens

MilkweedGOT MILK……WEED? We Do. MILKWEED is finally ready. In order to be sure plants are chemical free, we grow our own crop. Red, yellow & orange Asclepias curassavica along with the first planting of the SWAN plant that has many names including Gomphocarpus physocarpus: Asclepias physocarpa is the old botanical name, Goose plant, Giant swan milkweed, Hairy balls, Family jewels, Oscar, Cotton-bush and Balloon plant that I can think of. Last year we couldn’t keep up with demand so we doubled our crop. Hope we grew enough.
