Although not as commonly found as in previous years, Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) rapidly establishes itself in prairies and gardens. One of the tallest members of the milkweed family, each Common Milkweed plant bears 2 to 5 spherical clusters of whitish pink nectar-laden blossoms that please the eye.  Highly effective wildflower for attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies, Common Milkweed is also an essential part of the diet of Monarch caterpillars. 

What Does Milkweed Look Like

Common Milkweed grows 3 to 5 feet tall, although it has been known to grow even taller in gardens, and blooms during the summer (June-Aug). It has a single, hairy stem and broad, oval leaves that are light green and hairy underneath. From June to August, it produces clusters of fragrant, pinkish-purple flowers. Its fruit is a large, warty pod, which releases numerous brown, flat seeds with white, silky hair for wind dispersal. Resistant to deer and drought tolerant, this perennial wildflower is native to the central and eastern United States and parts of Canada and grows in full to partial sun conditions and dry to moist soil.
