Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) is the plant that often comes to mind when we hear the word "milkweed." The upright form and large oval leaves have a bold, architectural effect that contrasts so well with prairie grasses and numerous prairie wildflowers. This familiar milkweed thrives in almost any well-drained soil, and produces a profusion of lavender to pink flowers in midsummer. The extremely fragrant blooms attract and benefit many pollinators.
