Flowering - May - July.

Habitat - Dry or rocky woods, sandy open ground, ravine bottoms, low woods, slopes, ridges, roadsides.

Origin - Native to U.S.

Other info. - This striking species of milkweed can be found in just the extreme southeastern corner of Missouri. The plant is simple to identify in the field because of its big full umbels of white flowers.
Like most of the milkweeds, the plant will bleed a thick white sap if injured. This sap can be irritating to some people and can be toxic if ingested. Despite this, milkweeds make excellent garden specimens and are simple to grow. The native species take NO care once established.

Photographs taken at the Holly Ridge Conservation Area, Stoddard County, MO., 6-14-03, and in the Red Hills of Alabama, 6-4-05.
