WHAT FLORIDA NATIVE PLANT IS BLOOMING TODAY?: SAVANNAH MILKWEED (Asclepias pedicellata)
If there was any doubt that this plant is a milkweed, the brightly colored insects (Oncopeltus fasciatus) are a dead giveaway. Small, often overlooked, this Florida Native Plant has pretty urn shaped flowers which can be green to yellow.
