Plant Features

Fasicularis is a milkweed that can reach a height of three feet and has long, narrow, green, a little bit fuzzy leaves. It produces small, umbrella-shaped flowers in the summer that are pale pink. Many different kinds of bees and butterflies, including the Monarch, find it's flowers to be a big draw. California is home to this variety.

California Narrow Leaf 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.
