Butterfly Milkweed
Asclepias tuberosa

0.25 gram per packet, approximately  50 seeds

Help restore Monarch Butterfly habitat by planting this attractive wildflower! Clusters of solid orange flowers bloom June through August. Bees love their nectar, too!   

This herbacious perennial thrives in zones 3-9.  Tolerates shallow and rocky soil, drought and deer pressure.  Low-maintenance, prefers full sun and well-drained soil.  Plants grow 1-3 feet high and spread 1-2 feet wide.  Direct sow, as the taprooted plants do not transplant well.  Seedlings are easy to establish, but may take 2-3 years to flower.  In the meantime, the foliage will provide critical habitat for Monarch Butterfly caterpillars.

Great for mass plantings, wildflower mixes, or even a sunny garden border.
