Asclepias syriaca – Common Milkweed
Asclepias syriaca – Common Milkweed

Asclepias syriaca Common Milkweed is the plant most people think of when they hear the word ‘milkweed’.  This Michigan native occurs throughout most of the United States and thrives in almost any well drained soil and produces a profusion of fragrant mauve colored flowers in midsummer.  The sweet scented flowers attract hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and other pollinators and beneficial insects. Of all the milkweeds this is the easiest and fastest to establish, yet it is known to be invasive and must be used with care. This milkweed grows best in full sun and average to well-drained soil with no irrigation and will tolerate extreme conditions.
