Showy milkweed

Asclepias speciosa

We are excited to offer one of the showiest milkweeds, with a wide range in California, always a pleasure to see. Its blossoms are of a soft, rich pink and deliciously fragrant. Its 5" long fuzzy leaves are often covered with the caterpillars of Monarch butterflies in summer, whose reproduction goes best with a native milkweed upon which to lay their eggs.

Give them full sun and only water occasionally once they are established.These plants go dormant here at the coast in late summer and fall. They spread through rhizomes into large clumps, and make a beautiful display.

There are 75-100 seeds per packet, enough for 20 to 30 plants.
