Whorled milkweed grows almost anywhere and attracts pollinators in droves! In fact, it is one of the most widely distributed milkweed species in the United States. Bright white to light green flowers bloom in mid- to late summer, providing nectar for bees, hummingbirds and a wide variety of butterflies. It is a host plant for monarch butterflies whose caterpillars can only eat plants in the milkweed family. Great for butterfly gardens, meadows and naturalized areas, as it will spread. Looks terrific planted with native grasses, coneflower and black-eyed Susan’s.

» A nectar source for many butterflies, especially monarchs
» Monarchs only lay their eggs on milkweed plants
» Seed pods are used in dried flower arrangements
» Easy to grow, drought tolerant once established
» Deer and rabbit resistant
