Asclepias fascicularis, 10 seeds
Growing naturally in Western United States, this tough but deciduous perennial has a lot more garden tolerance than most of our native species.

Clusters of lavender-tincted white flowers in summer. Drought-tolerant and yet adaptable to clay soil, it is also deer-proof. Hardy from zone 6 onwards. 3 feet tall, 4 feet wide. Full sun to light shade. Drought-tolerant once established. Usually available only in cuttings/plants forms. Hard-to-find seeds, harvested 08/2017.
