Growth and Survival of Two Western Milkweed Species

Asclepias speciosa with monarch butterfly

Are you the type of person who wants detailed, highly informed information about native plants and native plant propagation?

If so, you may be interested in reading a recent study that looked at the growth of showy milkweed (Asclepias speciosa) and narrowleaf milkweed (Asclepias fascicularis) in nursery production. Collecting from various locations to increase genetic diversity for the study, Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds supplied the seeds of both species for this research. We are happy to be a part of the growing interest in research that will help the iconic monarch butterfly.
