Tropical Milkweed is an absolutely gorgeous blooming annual. The best part about it is the butterflies it attracts. Like its perennial counterpart this plant plays host to not only Monarchs, but many other species of butterflies and other pollinators alike.
Bright and ‘hot’ colors are mostly displayed with this annual. Hues of reds, oranges, yellows and a little purple draw the eye straight to them from afar because of their vibrant nature. These brilliant blooms sit atop deep green oblong lanceolate shaped foliage contrasting nicely. No matter where this plant is fixed in your landscape concept, you won’t be disappointed.
