Product Information Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Asclepias tuberosa, also known as Butterfly Weed or milkweed, boasts bright orange flowers in the summer that turn into pointed seed pods.

A drought-tolerant, perennial plant, Butterfly Weed provides lasting benefits for pollinators in your garden throughout the season.

A tuberous-rooted perennial with narrow foliage, milkweed is an upright and vigorous plant that gets its name from attracting butterflies! Great for cut flower arrangements. Plant Butterfly Weed seeds along wood side edges as an attractant for butterflies. Mulch lightly to protect from severe winters.
