Asclepias

Asclepias tuberosa Orange

Asclepias tuberosa is the butterfly weed brought to mind when talking about planting gardens to attract pollinators and especially Monarch butterflies. The bright, vivid orange blooms cover the plant in late summer. Tuberosa loves the dry spaces and seems to thrive along country roadsides. Add this perennial favorite to your garden and enjoy supporting the environment by providing a fabulous food source for our wildlife.
