Asclepias verticillata (Whorled Milkweed)

Unbranched, upright perennial with whorls of long, finely textured, needle-like leaves. Small clusters of tiny, white flowers appear in the upper leaf axils and stem tips. Self-seeding pods release in fall months and spread by rhizomes. Average growth rate. 

**Milkweed plants are critical to monarch butterflies survival, whose population has been decreasing drastically over the past 20 years. By planting Milkweed in your garden, you will help reverse the fortune of these beautiful insects!**
