Arka Plant (Akvana\Milkweeds)
The Calotropis gigantea, often called Crown Flower or Giant Milkweed, is a big, star-shaped purple or white flowering plant that stands out for its thick, green foliage. This plant is a favorite in gardens and landscapes because of its alluring appearance.
Wherever it grows, Crown Flower’s distinctive blossoms and broad foliage give off a tropical vibe. Toxic substances found in the plant’s milky sap act as a defense against herbivores. But you should exercise caution when using this feature, especially if there are kids or dogs nearby.
