Butterfly Milkweed Pink Studs (Asclepias tuberosa)

42.00

These tiny flowers belong to the butterfly milkweed plant. In nature, they bloom in tightly-packed orange or pink clusters. The milkweed is quite poisonous, but shares a unique symbiotic relationship with the Monarch butterfly.

As one of the few insects immune to the poison of the milkweed, monarchs choose to lay their larvae only on this species of plant. In exchange for the protection of its young, the butterfly pollinates the milkweed flowers.

Cast in sterling silver, we polish the edges to a glossy shine. The pink electroplate is applied on top of the sterling silver. It is a hypoallergenic and durable coat that adds a fun pop of color to these tiny flower studs.

  • Sterling silver w/ pink ceramic plating

  • ⅜ inch diameter

  • Ships in 1-2 days
