Asclepias tuberosa - Butterfly Weed

Asclepias tuberosa


A Must-Have for Monarchs

Common name: Butterfly Weed


Natives do it best! The orange of tuberosa is a vibrant punctuation in the garden. Long blooming, it attracts Monarchs and other pollinators all summer long.  


This plant comes nestled in a 4" square Deep CowPot with a free metal plant ID marker. Learn more about why we think CowPots are so awesome here.


Note: Asclepias varieties are very late to emerge each spring. So late, many gardeners worry it has died. But have patience. :-) We like to put the metal ID marker very close to the plant so that we know just where to keep an eye out for the first shoots in May.
