Details: Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) is not a weed at all but a lovely wildflower that is a tough self sufficient plant native of North American fields, wetlands, and prairies. It is the sole host plant for the struggling Monarch butterfly and is planted to attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and other winged insects. They thrive as a bush, shrub, or houseplant in zones 3 through 10. They will reach 3 to 4' in height when planted in your garden and will survive a cold winter when cut back and covered with mulch. They are wonderful attractant of wild life when planted in a garden but should be managed so they don't spread too much. They prefer bright direct light for 6 hours a day in cooler climates and bright indirect light in warmer climates. They are drought tolerant and cold tolerant and require almost no care when planted outside. In a pot, water when the soil is 50 percent dry.
