DWARF MILKWEED (Asclepias ovalifolia)
Large, clusters of creamy white flowers are wonderfully fragrant – but you have to crouch down to smell them! Leaves are dull green due to their short, fuzzy hair covering, and ooze sticky latex when damaged. Dwarf milkweed plays host to monarch caterpillars and its flowers are visited by a variety of insects.
