This is probably the easiest milkweed to grow to help feed Monarch butterfly caterpillars – adults get nectar from the flowers as well! Despite being found in wet locations in the wild, this plant does fine under average garden conditions. ‘Ice Ballet’ has pure, white flowers that are borne in flat-topped umbels above darkish green foliage. They are a good source of nectar for bees and other beneficial insects and make good cut flowers as well.
