Milkweed Heavenly Blue Tweedia

In our continued quest to adopt all the flowers with freckles, we give you: Milkweed Heavenly Blue Tweedia. Like its cousin, Soulmate Milkweed, it is much beloved by pollinators, but this little guy comes in vine form. Twining over 3 feet up the structure of your choice, producing elegant light blue flowers with turquoise polka dots. Plant in a large container with Freckles Viola and Mini Easter Ivy for a truly precious performance of petal and leaf patterns.

Milkweed, strong yet humble, native to North America, is the essential food of Monarch Butterflies. Milkweed provides sanctuary for bugs and birds that do the good work of pollinating plant life, and endearing flowers born on unique foliage that fits right in to every garden, no matter what your style.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets part shade, in well draining soil
When to Plant Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring
When to Expect Blooms Mid-summer through fall
Care Instructions Water regularly. Will self sow, so be sure to plant where spreading is welcome
Extra Credit Native to the East Coast of North America. Plant in a sunny but sheltered area, to protect the delicate flowers
