Narrowleaf Milkweed: Native U.S. States

Narrowleaf Milkweed (Asclepias fascicularis), not to be confused with Narrow-leaved Milkweed (Asclepias stenophylla), is native to the western United States. It can be found growing in a variety of habitats, including grasslands, open woodlands, and along roadsides.

Narrowleaf Milkweed (Asclepias fascicularis) visited by a male Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus).

The states where Narrowleaf Milkweed is native include:

  • Arizona
  • California
  • Idaho
  • Nevada
  • New Mexico
  • Oregon
  • Utah
  • Washington

This species is well-adapted to the varying climates found in these states and plays a vital role in supporting Monarch butterflies and other pollinators in the region. If you’re considering planting Narrowleaf Milkweed, ensure it’s suitable for your specific location and consult with local native plant experts or nurseries.
