  • Whorled Leaf Arrangement: As the name suggests, whorled milkweed is characterized by its distinctive leaf arrangement. The leaves grow in whorls, typically with several leaves emerging from the same node in a circular or whorled pattern along the stem.
  • Habitat and Range: Whorled milkweed is native to a wide range of habitats, including prairies, meadows, and open woodlands. It is distributed across North America, from Canada to the southeastern United States, and is often found in dry, sandy, or well-drained soils.
  • Attractive to Pollinators: Like other milkweed species, whorled milkweed is a valuable plant for pollinators, especially butterflies like monarchs. The plant provides nectar for adult butterflies and serves as a host plant for their caterpillars.
  • Drought Tolerance: Whorled milkweed is known for its ability to thrive in dry conditions. Its adaptation to drought makes it suitable for xeriscaping and landscaping projects in regions with limited water availability.
  • Conservation Value: Milkweeds, including whorled milkweed, play a crucial role in the life cycle of monarch butterflies. Monarch caterpillars feed exclusively on milkweed plants, making these plants essential for the survival of the monarch population. Conservation efforts often involve planting milkweed to support monarch butterfly habitats.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
