bloodflower, scarlet milkweed
Asclepias curassavica is a tender perennial that grows upright and tall with spiraling lanceolate leaves. The flowers, in small scarlet red and orange umbels, are very bright and showy, and wonderful at attracting Monarch butterflies. Bloodflower is a milkweed and thus contains a milky sap that exudes from the foliage when cut or damaged.
