Asclepias tuberosa

Common name: Butterfly weed

This plant is a butterfly magnet.

The stunning orange flowers bloom from early to late summer.

Flowers are great for fresh bouquets and when dried.

It does require slightly acidic and well-drained soil to perform its best.

It is quite a sleepy head in spring as the foliage will appear a lot later than other perennials, so be patient.
