Sullivant's milkweed, Asclepias sullivantii

Sullivant's Milkweed

  • Sullivant's milkweed looks very similar to commom milkweed and is a monarch's favourite but is less aggressive than the common milkweed. The large clusters of pink flowers bloom from June to August and are very fragrant.


    The gorgeous pink flowers attract many butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and a huge variety of other insects with their nectar. Like all milkweed plants it is the larval host to the Monarch butterfly. It is a great plant for any pollinator garden.

    Growing conditions:

    Full sun with average to moist conditions. Grows well in regular garden conditions.

    60-150 cm tall and wide.
