1g Asclepias fascicularis

Asclepias fascicularis, commonly known as Narrow Leaf Milkweed, is a native perennial herb valued for its ecological importance and low-maintenance nature. This drought-tolerant plant typically grows 2 to 3 feet tall and wide, featuring thin stems and long, narrow leaves arranged in whorls. It produces small, erect flowers in clusters of pale pink, purple, white, or greenish hues from June to September. Thriving in full sun and well-draining soil, Asclepias fascicularis is an excellent choice for butterfly gardens, particularly as a host plant for Monarch butterflies. Its ability to spread through rhizomes makes it suitable for forming small stands in dry to moist soils, including clay, and it can tolerate various climate conditions.
