Intensely frangrant, tough, showy, long-lived and tolerant of poor soil – this is the EASIEST Milkweed you can grow! Divinely scented of Lilac, plentiful 4” sperical clusters appear in Summer atop 3-4’ upright stems. A nectar source for many butterflies, especially Monarchs! Spreads by rhizomes, so it’s best placed where that won’t be a problem or in a large container. Native to much of the U.S.
*Due to CA agricultural regulations, we’re required to treat Asclepias plants with BT (a non-toxic, naturally occurring biological larvicide) to help combat the Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM). If you plan to introduce Monarch caterpillars to this plant, we recommend letting it establish for one season (3 mo.) before doing so to ensure it is large enough to provide sufficient food and the BT has had time to wear off.
