Poke Milkweed grows best in indirect sun or partial shade, making it a superb plant for gardens with dappled sunlight. An important resource for Monarch butterflies, the bi-colored flowers also attract a variety of beneficial insects, including some varieties of moths. Tall, slender stalks reach heights of 5' and produce globe-shaped blooms that instead of standing upright, dangle elegantly off the stems. (Asclepias exaltata)
