Asclepias purpurascens

Purple milkweed is similar to common milkweed in flower color and leaf shape, but is more compact and colorful and doesn't spread as much.

In addition to being a host plant for the monarch butterfly, many other butterflies and bees will visit. It's bitter taste makes it fairly deer and rabbit resistant.

Mr.
Just picked up 3 purple milkweed plants and they were perfect. Will be doing business more with them in the future.
