Although the strong fragrance of Dwarf Milkweed attracts many insects, only fairly large ones like butterflies and bees are effective pollinators of this plant. When an insect lands on the flower, its leg may get caught in a slit where a sac of pollen hooks on. The insect flies away with the pollen sac trailing behind until it is transferred to another flower. Dwarf Milkweed is an important food source for monarch butterfly larvae.
