Asclepias Verticillata

AKA: Whorled Milkweed, Whorled-leaf Milkweed, Horsetail Milkweed

We are excited to introduce a new Asclepias to our plant line up: 'Whorled Milkweed' is an easy to grow plant that is vital to the Monarch butterfly population.

Asclepias Verticillata has skinny, whorled leaves that grow on a simple, unbranched stem topped with clusters of 20+ white flowers. A later blooming asclepias that prefers sandy soil, and full sun. Flowers bloom from June to September, making it a late season host and the flowers are fragrant.

Whorled Milkweed plants offer so much to the gardener: a pollinator magnet, deer resistant, drought tolerant, a native plant that produces lovely cut flowers and seed pods that are valued in arrangements. You absolutely want Asclepias Verticillata in your garden!

Small but pretty July 11, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Brooklyn, NY United States  
I bought one a couple of months ago. It was really small but very healthy. I’ve planted it a fabric pot on my partial shade patio. It’s grown slowly but has remained healthy and is a pretty little plant. Maybe year 2 it will achieve the advertised size?  I don’t see that happening this year.
