Extremely rare in the trade, this Monarch butterfly host & nectar source displays lovely smallish deep pink flowers in clusters on upright stems above attractively veined blue-green oval shaped leaves. Native to the Western US (Arizona, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colorado & New Mexico) it will reach 3’ tall in rich, moist soil & attain lesser height in poor, drier, sandy soil. Not much info exists yet for this scarcely grown Milkweed – let us know how you like it! Summer bloomer.
NOTE:Due to CA agricultural regulations, we are required to treat all Asclepias plants with BT, a non-toxic and naturally occurring biological larvicide, to help combat the Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM). If you are planning to introduce Monarch caterpillars to this plant, we recommend letting it establish for one season before doing so.
