Plant Details: Common Milkweed
4 - 9
This is a must have Milkweed to have if you are feeding the Monarch caterpillars. This species has much larger leaves and hence more food for the Monarch caterpillars to feed on. A beautiful plant and will re-seed freely if conditions are favorable. If you don't want it to re-seed make sure you that you cut the seed heads before they open.... or you can send them to us and we will propagate more! Mature size is approximately 4' tall x 3' wide. Beautiful pinkish rosy flowers make this a great addition to any pollinator garden, check out this link to DavesGarden for a picture - http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/5421/.
