Looking for Native Plantings? Consider the Butterfly Weed 

Butterfly weed is a North American native planting, ideal for naturalizing the sunniest spots in your garden. Asclepias tuberosa is an integral part of a butterfly garden. Its large, flat-topped, bright orange flowers spike upward and reach as high as two feet, attracting legions of butterflies. The abundant orange flowers bloom in large clusters that add a generous splash of color to your landscape.

You will enjoy a long cycle of blooms, with most of the United States enjoying the show of color for almost the entire summer season.

Asclepias tuberosa is an easy-to-manage plant from seed and may self-seed in the landscape once established. It requires only a little care from you, including occasional fertilizing, possible aphid control, and deadheading the spent blossoms.

Butterfly weed is also prized for its cut flowers, making it a popular choice for dried floral arrangements. The flowers also produce attractive seed pods. Like the spent blossoms, crafters frequently use those seeds to add interest and texture to wreaths and dried flower arrangements.

Butterfly weed or Asclepias tuberosa Is an Easy-Care Option.

Not only is Asclepias tuberosa a beauty, but it's also drought-tolerant and heat-tolerant, making it hardy in semi-arid regions.

Finally, butterfly weed is deer-resist and rabbit-resistant. That means it is not a first-choice dining option for the local deer and rabbits. Because herbivore animals have a sharp sense of smell, they usually prefer less fragrant plants. Thus, they will eat your plant only if they lack fewer aromatic options.

I have enjoyed them.

I am trying to get them to root and then set them out in the yard.

Deborah Tucker
First time buyer, but not the last!

Tn nursery filled my order quickly and accurately. The Butterfly milkweed plants, Virginia bluebells and Witch hazel arrived healthy and are in the ground. I'll definitely be a returning customer.

Butterfly Weed bare root

I ordered 3 bare-root butterfly weed 2-1/2 weeks ago. Received them in a few days & planted them the following day. One of them has already sent up two sprouts ! I'm waiting impatiently for the others to start growing.

We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us a 5-Star review. We are so pleased to hear it is working just as it should and that you are enjoying it so much. We look forward to helping you in the future!
