Calotropis Gigantea - Giant Milkweed - Crown Flower - Asclepias - 10 Seeds

This milkweed family member typically grows to 8-15' tall. It is noted for its upright growth, milky sap, pale purple or white crown-like flowers, and white wooly shoots and leaves which mature to subglabrous. Flowers appear in clusters (umbellate cymes) throughout the year, but primarily in summer. Flowers (both white and purple) are commonly used in Hawaii for leis. Elliptic to oblong leaves (to 4-8" long) have cordate bases. Fruits infrequently form. This giant milkweed is an important larval plant for monarch butterflies.
