Product Description

Asclepias tuberosa 'Hello Yellow' 
Common Name: Butterfly Weed, pleurisy root.
Zones 3 to 9.
Full sun.
Plants reach 24 inches tall and 24 inches wide. Herbaceous perennial.

  • Offers three months of golden yellow blooms from early through late summer
  • Attracts hummingbirds, Monarch butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects
  • Milkweed-like seed pods in fall
 
This hassle-free perennial will provide three months of golden yellow blooms from early through late summer. Deadheading the flowers will stimulate another bloom cycle about a month after the first one. The flowers, which are heavily laden with nectar and pollen, are particularly attractive to hummingbirds, Monarch butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects. Leaves are a food source for monarch butterfly caterpillars.

Butterfly Weed prefers slightly acidic, sandy-humus-loam that is well-drained. It is easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils, and drought tolerant enough to perform well in poor, dry soils. New growth tends to emerge late in the spring. Butterfly weed is a tuberous rooted, and does not transplant well due to its deep taproot. Mature plants may freely self-seed if seed pods are not removed prior to splitting open. Plants are easily grown from seed, but are somewhat slow to establish and may take 2 to 3 years to produce flowers.

Asclepias tuberosa is a prairie plant native to North America from New York, west to N. Dakota, southwest to Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico, and south to Florida.

Attributes: Border plants, Cut flower, Dried flower, Drought Tolerant, Mass Planting. Butterfly gardens, meadows, prairies, or naturalized/native plant areas. Also effective in sunny borders. Whether massing plants in large drifts or sprinkling them throughout a prairie or meadow, butterfly weed is one of our showiest native willowers.

  1. Surprised it was bareroot 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2017

    I don't seeing anywhere in product description that it would be shipped bare root so was very surprised when I got delivery. I should have known since this cultivar does not come true from seed and is normally propagated by root cuttings. The roots were good size and arrived in excellent condition. No green growth showing so cannot comment on the viability.
