Garden hilarity abounds when you plant this living naughty joke! A SUPER EASY milkweed from South Africa that can host Monarch caterpillars. In early Summer it forms small mauve and white star-shaped flowers in pendulous clusters that make way for an abundance of 2.5-3” hairy green “family jewels” shaped seed pods with a reddish blush.
Annual, 6’ H, 6’ W, Full sun to part shade
