Butterflyweed (Asclepias Tuberosa)


Milkweed is a great choice for a meadow garden, with showy yellow-orange flower clusters topping its upright stems. Pair it with other plants like native, ornamental grasses and wildflowers, such as asters and purple coneflowers, to create a butterfly habitat.  

Zones 3 - 9. 6+ hours of sun. Drought tolerate. Doesn’t like wet soil, but will need to be watered regularly after transplanting to get established. Blooms in summer. Butterfly magnet!

2’ tall and wide.

Do not ingest.
