There are two entries for the same plant in Plant Database:

Blue Milkweed (Oxypetalum coeruleum)

Blue Milkweed (Oxypetalum coeruleum)

and

Southern Star (Oxypetalum coeruleum 'Heavenborn')

Southern Star (Oxypetalum coeruleum 'Heavenborn')

I have pictures but I'm not sure where to put them. Please advise.

I'm not sure I understand Anne. The first plant you listed, O. coeruleum, is the species entry while the second is the cultivar 'Heavenborn'.

I added Tweedia coerulea as a synonym to the 'Heavenborn' entry, although it appears there's disagreement re: what the correct botanic name should be.

Ahhh .. I did not realize you had separate species/cultivar. Thanks!
