Fewflower Milkweed

Fewflower Milkweed, Aesclepius lancelota

Almost all of Florida’s 24 milkweeds are native, and at least two of them are native only to Florida (endemic). Milkweeds are frequently encountered throughout the state, and the rest of North America. Different species are found in very wet habitats as well as in very dry ones. This species, fewflower milkweed, grows mostly in wet flatwoods and in floodplain forests (Wunderlin, 2003). Fewflower milkweed is found in the southeast U.S. from Texas to Virginia (Kartesz, 1999). It blooms in the summer.
