Plant of the Week-an African Milkweed

A fun plant for our A&M Garden Club blog this week comes to you courtesy of club member Judy S who has “balloon milkweed” growing in her yard in December. Gomphocarpus physocarpus,  formerly known as Asclepias physocarpus, is native to Africa. Some may know it as “monkey balls”.  What unusual plant do you have growing in your yard to share with our club?
