Asclepias linaria 'Monarch Magnet' 2.0 PPAF

Monarch Magnet Pineleaf Milkweed

Description

Named for its unique foliage, Pineleaf Milkweed is a perfect addtion to any butterfly lover's garden. This perennial is one of several milkweed hosts to Monarch and Queen butterflies, who sip nectar from white flower clusters appearing spring through fall. Native to the dry, rocky slopes of the desert Southwest, this is a great addition to any pollinator garden or landscape. We've improved on our cultivar of Monarch Magnet-- version 2.0 has a growth habit that is fuller and more dense than before. It doesn't damp off either, making it much easier to grow.
