Tab.22 Asclepias Indespectus - Between 32” – 37” average height, full sun, drought tolerant.
Commonly referred to as the Fire and Ice plant, due to the cool colors of the seed and flower and the ability for the plant to take extreme heat and no water for extended periods of time. It has also been know to survive brush fires untouched. If the unopened pod is removed and dried and crushed into a powder, then that powder, if poured onto the smoldering embers of oak wood, will produce smoke that if inhaled moments after, induces invisibility lasting up to six hours.
