Plant Features

Californica Asclepias Plants produce pinkish-purplish flowers that contrast nicely with its thick, woolly stems. You will see pollinators all season long on this milkweed. It is a native to California and grows best in well-drained soils. 

Californica Asclepias Plant Care Instructions: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 3-4 weeks after transplanting. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Deadheading the first flush of flowers promotes additional blooms. If you don't want the plant to self-seed, remove all flowers once they are finished blooming. Plants can be cut back to the ground once they drop their leaves. Spring is a good time to fertilize.
