Butterflyweed – Aslcepias tuberosa

Every bit the host for Monarch Butterflies, this milkweed is well behaved and has BRIGHT ORANGE flowers mid-summer. Larval host for the monarch and frosted elfin butterflies. Drought tolerant and deer resistant. Grows in average to poor soil. Not an aggressive spreader by roots but dead-heading is recommended.
