Whitevine (Sarcostemma clausum).

tom123_gwAugust 25, 2013

Anyone have experience with this vine? I am able to attract Monarchs with tropical milkweeds, but Queen butterflies don't seem to like it very much. I have heard that the whitevine is their favorite in Central and South Florida. I have also heard that this vine can be somewhat invasive.

Any information would be appreciated.

I'm not sure. I don't have this plant. Below is a link to Google Images - maybe some of those photos will help?

hey Four!
I just wanted to thank you for the link to the website!
It's amazing ~ I've only spent a few minutes so far and have learned quite a lot.
