Showy Milkweed (Asclepias) lives up to its name, producing an explosion of star-shaped flowers in rounded three-inch clusters from late spring into summer. Each bicolor bloom stands like a crown with pale, tapering horns surrounded by darker pink to purple sepals. An important nectar resource for adult monarchs, other butterflies, hummingbirds, native bees, and honey bees. (Asclepias speciosa)
