Thumbnail Filmstrip of Asclepias tuberosa - Butterflyweed Images
One of the most striking of all wildflowers, the brilliant orange flowers of the Butterflyweed appear in mid-summer and are a real magnet for butterflies. Reaching up to three feet tall, this is one of the last plants to come up in the spring as it requires warm soil conditions before it will grow. Butterflyweed is fantastic in borders paired with Prairie Dropseed or Little Bluestem. Start some Asclepias tuberosa seeds this year to attract butterflies to your garden!
