photoblog image Milkweed

Milkweed

This milkweed flower is fragrant and attractive.

My oldest plants flowered and produced their milkweed pods

this year for the first time.

They should burst into their characteristic silky seed carriers in October.

I love the flowers, Mary. Last year I was in October in Michigan and I saw the silky seed carriers and I took one home. This is a wonderful series of pictures showing the process. Thank you.
Mary MacADNski: I looked yesterday and can not find a seed pod. I can get my son or aunt to save them any time. I could send some around. I got those pink pom pom poppies from a woman here on SC.
