Asperula Asclepias produces clumps of upright stems with a sprawling habit and beautiful multi-colored flowers that pollinators cannot get enough of. The long narrow leaves begin to curve as they grow in length, somewhat resembling antelope horns. Asperula must have well-drained soils to thrive. It is native to the western United States.
Common Names: antelope-horns, spider milkweed, green-flowered milkweed, spider antelope-horns, antelope horns
Asperula 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.
