The native food for western monarchs, occurring along the migration routes from the central California coast to western Canada. Many native populations of this plant are endangered by agriculture and development, creating a spotty trail for the traveling butterflies. Pink flower clusters are borne from leaf axils, followed by seed pods with a toothed surface, which split apart releasing wind-carried seeds. Tolerates poor drainage and dry summers.
