Description Like all species of Asclepias, this milkweed is also a host plant for the Monarch butterfly. A small evergreen plant with white flowers, this milkweed seems to attract the later summer butterflies looking for a place to deposit her eggs. Our favorite milkweed as it blooms off and on all summer and can grow in just about any conditions except for desert dry sites. Mature size is approximately 1.5-2' tall and wide.
