Blood Flower Scarlet Milkweed Asclepias Curassavica is an erect, evergreen perennial sub-shrub, often grown as an annual. It has become a naturalized weed in tropical and subtropical pastures, fields and disturbed areas throughout the world, including central and southern Florida. Like most milkweeds, it has opposite leaves and milky sap. The flowers are orange and red and borne in terminal and axillary clusters that are 2-4 in across. It blooms continuously from spring until fall.

Blood Flower Scarlet Milkweed Asclepias Curassavica is easy to grow, thriving in dry, moist, and even wet soils. Use scarlet milkweed in perennial borders and meadow gardens. Its dependable bright orange and red flowers stand out against the dark green foliage. Blood flower is a thin, unobtrusive little plant that can be squeezed in among other perennials and shrubs and still counted on to show off its pretty flowers.

The plant attracts butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
