Asclepias asperula is a widespread US native that can be found on dry sandy/gravely soils from Oklahoma west to Southern California. Commonly known as antelope horn due the leaf shape, Asclepias asperula forms a 2' tall x 3' wide clump, adorned from March into May (NC) with amazingly intricate 2" wide, dome-shaped flower heads composed of dozens of flowers with green petals and a central purple, green, and white star...a favorite of both Queen and Monarch butterflies. If you're fascinated with the amazing patterns found in nature, Asclepias asperula is for you.
