Asclepias tuberosa

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.

Does require a slightly acidic and well drained soil to perform its best.

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