Narrow Leaf Milkweed (Asclepias fascicularis) can be found growing wild in the Western United States and Baja California. It is a host plant for the Monarch butterfly, and the Monarch caterpillars eat the foliage. Therefore, in a home landscape is helpful to plant a number of milkweeds close together to give monarch caterpillars an adequate amount to eat. Narrow Leaf Milkweed is easily grown and drought tolerant as well.
