Asclepias speciosa (Showy Milkweed) Wildflower: This Asclepias speciosa (Showy Milkweed) Wildflower originated from North America. It was painted in 1923 by Mary Vaux Walcott (1860-1940).
The Painting: Mary Morris Vaux Walcott (July 31, 1860 – August 22, 1940) was an American artist and naturalist known for her watercolor paintings of wildflowers. Over many summers Mary travelled to the Canadian Rockies looking for important flowering species to paint. In 1925, the Smithsonian published some 400 of her illustrations, accompanied by brief descriptions, in a five-volume work entitled North American Wild Flowers.
