Orange Butterfly Weed

Asclepias tuberosa


Vivid orange blossoms clustered together as are milkweed flowers. Plants are shorter than our common milkweed plants.


Loves extremely dry well drained soil.


This was planted on a prairie on personal property. It does grow wild further south in Wisconsin, but is not naturally wild in this specific region. Great nectar and host plant for Monarch Butterflies.
