June Plant of the Month

Posted Jun 14, 2020

Each month, we highlight a different native plant so we can all get to know it better. The votes are in, and this month’s plant is Arizona milkweed (Asclepias angustifolia).

This particular milkweed, if in a happy spot, can bloom 6 to 8 months out of the year. So it’s not only a great Monarch host plant, but a great pollinator plant as well!

If you’d like to add Arizona milkweed to your landscape, we suggest planting it during a rainy monsoon season or in the fall.
