Description
Asclepias tuberosa - (Butterfly Weed) North American native bearing bright orange clusters of flowers that are 'butterfly magnets' and Monarch larvae food source; blooms on 2'-3' stems in early to mid summer-fall; prefers good drainage; winter hardiness zone 3-9; plug (late to emerge).

We are not perennial growers but we have been using all types of plant material in our gardens with bulbs and have recommended doing so for over 20 years! We have friends who grow plants in the U.S. and have offered them to us for our catalogue. We're sure you'll enjoy them in your garden especially when you see how they extend and expand your blooming season!

Our pollinators are so important to the sustainability of our gardens and food crops for insect and birds and if each of us participates in healthy gardening practices and chooses some of the pollinator attracting plants, we can collectively make a HUGE difference.
