Asclepias syriaca | Milkweed | Butterfly Flower | Silkweed | 200_Seeds


This is Asclepias syriaca, also known as common milkweed, butterfly flower, silkweed, silky swallow wort, and Virginia silkweed. Help the Monarchs, and all of the other butterflies, and even the honey bees for that matter, by giving them what they need to survive, reproduce, and flourish. This is not only the best North American Monarch butterfly plant to have, it is also the best honey bee milkweed in the sense that it produces the highest yield of honey compared to the other milkweeds. This milkweed is a Perennial Herb that can grow up to about 9 feet tall, and it is a big hit with all of the birds, bees and butterflies. Asclepias syriaca is a mid Summer bloomer with bursts of rose and mauve colored flowers. This plant loves to live in full sun, but does fairly well in partial shade as well. This is the plant people generally think of when the term milkweed is used. It is somewhat historical in the sense that Asclepias syriaca was detailed in Cornuts 1635 work Canadensium Plantarum Historia, making it one of the earliest documented North American species. Not only is this a Host Plant for the Monarch Butterfly, but the butterflies and the larvae use glycosides from the plant to make themselves toxic to birds and other animals who might want to eat them. Asclepias syriaca is a long time larval host plant of the Monarch, Queen and Soldier butterflies. It is also the larval host of the Milkweed Tussock Moth. Asclepias in general are documented nectar sources for the Monarch, Orange-edged Roadside-Skipper, Dina Yellow, Carus Skipper, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, and Falcate Metalmark butterflies. It is also the nectar source for the Clarks sphinx, and again the Milkweed Tussock moth.
