Native to the western US and Canada, Showy Milkweed is found in prairies, meadows, roadsides, and other open spaces. Its thick, soft leaves are favored by monarch caterpillars, and monarchs use it both as a host plant and nectar source. In addition to monarchs, Showy Milkweed is also attractive to queens and many other butterflies, as well as hummingbirds and honeybees. Less invasive than Common Milkweed. Pink flowers. 3’ height, full sun.
