Asclepias verticillata, commonly known as whorled milkweed, is an upright perennial that typically grows to 2.5’ tall on simple, usually unbranched stems clad with long, narrow, sessile, needle-like, linear leaves with revolute margins arranged in whorls of 3 to 6 at each node along the length of the stems.
