(Milkweed) Create a perfect butterfly oasis for the Monarch Butterfly by adding Asclepias curassavica Yellow to your garden. Standing 2-3 feet tall and spreading up to 2 feet wide, Asclepias curassavica Yellow produces bright, pure yellow flowers atop deep green foliage. Asclepias curassavica Yellow is annual milkweed in zones 9-10 and is grown as a long blooming annual in cooler climates. Typically you will find that annual milkweed has a longer blooming reason than its perennial sister. Planted in full sun to part shade, Asclepias curassavica Yellow can handle dry conditions but prefer and look better with regular watering. Milkweed is the host plant for the Monarch Butterfly, they lay their eggs in the underside of the leaves and once they hatch the caterpillars feed on the foliage. The stunning flowers provide the nectar the mature butterfly needs to continue the circle of life.
