Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)

  • I have very fragrant blooms and bloom midsummer.


    I’m one of the fastest milkweeds to become established because I spread by rhizomes 


    I'm a pollinator magnet and attract many different butterflies and bees. Hummingbirds are attracted to me too.


    I'm a host plant for the larvae of Monarchs and several moth species.
