Do not buy, dangerous for monarchs in northern climates. https://xerces.org/blog/tropical-milkweed-a-no-grow

My favorite milkweed

Beautiful blooms that kept going until frost. Butterflies loved it so much that the monarch babies decimated my plants which rebounded from being basically just stems. Sadly annual in zone 6. 4 stars because germination was spotty for me.
