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.
