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.
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). 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.
