Plant Spotlight: Desert or Rush Milkweed

We love the structural quality of Desert or Rush Milkweed (Asclepias subulata) in the garden. This plant thrives in all Morongo Basin elevations (hardy to 10-20 Fahrenheit). Can tolerate some shade.

This plant is a host for many insects, including butterflies! The bloom season is long.
