Asclepias Tuberosa (Butterfly Weed) A punch of intense tangerine orange invites droves of butterflies. A host plant for Monarchs in particular; butterflies also cherish its lavish flower clusters filled with scrumptious nectar. Green seed pods open to glistening silky parachutes that float with the breeze to a new location. It emerges late in the spring. Requires little care once established. Native to eastern North America. Learn more at: https://www.bluestoneperennials.com/ASTU.html
