Asclepias variegata

This is a rare Milkweed that’s Endangered in several states, including Pennsylvania. Redring Milkweed thrives in areas that are shady, which are unlike other species of Milkweed. It produces showy umbels of small bicolor flowers of red and white. They almost look like snowballs! The few you may find in the wild are often found in open woodlands or edge habitats. They prefer their woodlands to be dry and/or rocky. Since it’s a Milkweed, it’s capable of hosting Monarch caterpillars!
