Product Description

Asclepias tuberosa
Common Name: Butterfly Weed, pleurisy root.
Zones 3 to 9.
Full sun.
Plants reach 24 inches tall and 24 inches wide. Herbaceous perennial. This hassle-free perennial will provide three months of tangerine orange blooms (occasionally red or yellow) 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.

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.
