Narrowleaf Milkweed

Asclepias fascicularis

Plant Description

Narrowleaf milkweed is a host plant for monarchs and other species of butterflies. It produces a cluster of pretty, pale pink flowers in early to late summer on stems with thin, lance-shaped leaves. The plant forms clumps that are smaller and shorter than showy milkweed. It is fairly drought tolerant, preferring thin rocky soils.
