Asclepias speciosa, Showy Milkweed

Showy Milkweed is native to the western half of US and Canada, with two or three foot tall stems and large gray fuzzy leaves. Fragrant, tiny, pink flowers form 4 inch wide clusters in summer, can keep blooming for many weeks. Large, showy pods full of fluffy silk and seed in the fall. It is quite drought tolerant, tolerates alkaline soils.

All of the milkweeds are excellent butterfly nectar plants and also serve as the sole food source for Monarch caterpillars. The leaves of this species are large and velvety. The flower umbels are pink, and the large warty pods are great in dried arrangements. Milkweeds have many industrial and medicinal uses. The plants can spread widely by underground rhizomes and resent division, plant where it has lots of room in sun and will be left undisturbed.

Asclepias speciosa also attracts checkerspots, hairstreaks, honeybees, hummingbirds, painted lady butterflies, pale swallowtails, sphinx moths, queens, tiger swallowtails, variegated fritillaries and more…
