Milkweed flower

Up close, at Glover Perennials...


  1. lovely pic, as was the bee in calamintha shot. I used to have a couple of wild milkweed plants coming up in my lawn...they disappeared last year, probably the victim of drought. The blooms on the one in your shot are spectacular!

  2. I love how they smell. So invasive, and yet with a few truly redeeming qualities.

  3. Thanks, Paula - they have pretty flowers yes, and are tall, so I'm thinking of ways to incorporate them into plantings.

    Hi Ann - bother, I should have sniffed them. Funny how a local can be invasive :-)
