Feed the Monarchs! Narrow-leaf milkweed is a California native flower that is a preferred food source for monarch butterflies. Sometimes called Mexican whorled milkweed, this flowering perennial blooms in clusters of lavender tinted flowers. Like all milkweeds, the seed pods will swell and burst with seeds attached to silky hairs.  Monarchs eat this plant and lay eggs on it, making it an ideal plant to put in your butterfly garden.  This subshrub grows about 2-4′ tall.  Those who want to support the monarch population can plant this flower throughout their property to ensure a robust food supply for these beautiful creatures!
