This gorgeous perennial wildflower from the open woods, glades and fields of the southeastern United States is one of the brightest and most undemanding choices for a dry sunny garden spot. Radiant, bright-orange flowers sit atop 1-2' stalks from June to August. As a rich nectar source, the intricate blooms draw in many butterflies. Most importantly, Asclepias is the only larval food for the glorious Monarch butterfly; plant some in your garden, not only for the beauty but to help save our beautiful Monarchs. S/M-D/GDr

Customer Reviews

seems most hardy Review by Michael
Though these are not the most common in my area (SW Virginia), they are the most "native" and beautiful...and seem to be the most hardy that I've bought from Forest Farm. (Posted on 4/20/2017)
