Asclepias tuberosa
[Butterfly weed]

Zones
18 - 24 in. Sun Orange 3 - 9

Native to east coast meadows - long bloom season followed by green, milkweed-like fruit with silky seeds. Its striking flowers are great in fresh bouquets and the pods compliment dried arrangements later in the year. Re-seeds at a very controlled pace. The deep taproot makes it very difficult to transplant once established.

Care: Native to the American prairie, Butterfly weed will do well in average soil and tends to prefer dry conditions. Very little care is needed once established. You might as will let it in place because its tuberous tap root makes transplanting and division difficult.

Other Attributes:
Good cut flower Dries well
Attracts butterflies Attracts hummingbirds
