Plant of the Month: Narrowleaf Milkweed

Perfect for planting in late spring to summer, this star of the season enjoys full sun and light water. Narrowleaf milkweed, or Asclepias fascicularis, is one of few CA natives that goes dormant in late fall to winter, taking on a twig-like appearance. This deciduous period signals monarch butterflies to stop laying their eggs. An important detail on why you should grow native milkweed in your garden.

Narrowleaf milkweed can be pruned down to the base when dormant. This plant spreads by root system over time. Do not treat with pesticides to avoid harming monarch eggs or other beneficial insects such as lady beetles, lacewings, and syrphid flies.
