Asclepias fascicularis
#1 Container Size

California Native Monarch Butterfly Foodplant


An easy to grow native perennial that grows two to three feet tall by equal width and rhizomes that spread the plant to form small stands. It has narrow mid-green five-inch-long leaves bundled in fascicles and attractive two-inch-wide clusters of rose-pink flowers through the summer. Then in late summer goes dormant to re-emerge in mid-spring. Best planted in full sun but will grow in part sun at the sacrifice of flowers. Accepts water when given but this drought tolerant plant can be grown in extremely dry conditions and is tolerant of a wide range of soil types, including clay.
