very nice, esp the pappus…
May I suggest that : color changes in flowers often I think may be due to changes in the pH of the soil or micronutrients dded or deficiency, as we often see in Hydrangeas

asclepias curassavica @ Paderu forest near Vizag in AP with Yellow flower not regular red.


very nice. do you have side views of this flower?
its considered a weed but i have also seen it grown in home garden tubs, hence the following : is this wild or cultivated.

you mention forest… is that the real forest or a garden name, pardon my ignorant question


It was near a village in the forest. Might be in cultivation as ornamental. Escaped from cultivation. 

Photo 2 has few flowers in side view.

Asclepias curassavica  हळदी कुंकू 

But in हळदी कुंकू flowers, corolla is red! I can’t see it here …?


Pl. see

Yes …, but somehow in my image (and few other images taken), I couldn’t see the red corolla. Hence I was wondering about the id.

I see some images in Google search with yellow alone – a cultivar of Asclepias curassavicaSilky Gold. Have not checked whether there are more such cultivars

Asclepias curassavica Silky Gold

As per … it is Aslepias tuberosa..

Thanks …; did not know about A. tuberosa.
At Wikipedia, there is an interesting note – and may help resolve the ID …  is uniquely identified by the larger number of flowers, and the hairy stems that are not milky when broken.

Hopefully I will visit this garden tomorrow, if time favours.


Thanks .. Yes, hopefully this will resove the id confusion


…, I had been to garden today morning (8.4.18). Found the yellow coloured Asclepias. The stem was clearly not hairy, white sap oozed when I plucked a leaf. Thus it must be cultivar of A. curassavica and most probably Silky Gold. I will return to this post and attach the pictures in short while

Posting pictures of yellow coloured Asclepias curassavica – of the same site that … visited …  the stem is not hairy, and the white sap is seen.
