Plant Description

Attract and feed more monarch butterflies with this pretty, pure white flowering milkweed. ‘Ice Ballet’ grows to around 3’ in height. It has 3-4”, dense clusters of vanilla-scented, white flower heads that put on a show from mid summer into fall. It is a must for butterflies and hummingbirds, and will thrive in a sunny, damp garden or in a sunny, rain garden. Dies completely to the ground in the fall. Very easy and sweetly fragrant.  New this year.
