Asclepias speciosa

Asclepias speciosa
A magnificent and adaptable species making a big impressive plant quickly.
The fleshy pink flowers are of the usual intricate asclepiad design and contrast well with the soft pale foliage.
Asclepias speciosa, Senna hebecarpa and Clerodendron trichotomum fargesii
Almost any soil as long as not too soggy or parched. Works well with other large prairie plants. It can run somewhat so not something for very neat gardens.
