What’s Blooming? Milkweed

MilkweedIf you’ve never let swamp milkweed flower in your garden you may not realize what an adorable plant this is. Not to mention it smells like vanilla.

By the end of June, the fluffy pom-pom flowers are fuzzy and irresistible to touch. This makes them a great choice for starting a butterfly garden with your children.  Butterflies will drink nectar from the flowers and lay their eggs on the leaves.

This is one of the plants the Enabling Garden grows that makes it a pollinator habitat in the Plant, Grow, Fly program. You can start a pollinator habitat too.
