Asclepias fascicularis

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Asterids Gentianales Apocynaceae Asclepias

Narrow-leaved milkweed.

This species is occasional in Santa Barbara. I’ve seen it blooming between June and September but any individual plant seems to last for a much shorter period. I will find one cluster of plants which will bloom for a few weeks and stop and then later I’ll find another small cluster. As far as I can tell plants grow in different places in different years.

    Very nice photos of the Asclepias fascicularis it helped me today to identify this species in my area (Truckee river by Reno) at Mayberry Park. I grabbed a few seed pods to plant at my home.
