Sorry we are now closed for the season. We will be spending this time working on the gardens, inventory, firming up spring ordering from our growers and then the website. Our plan is to return the shopping cart in Feb/Mar for 6-8 weeks for pickup order reservations in May/early June. Please note we will not be adding all the plants available - so always way more to see when you drop by. 2022 Hours tent. Thursday to Sunday 10-4 early May to ??

Butterfly weed

$8.95

Asclepias tuberosa     Perennial of the Year 2017 
We at times also have other varieties on site as well for pick up only.
Butterfly weed is a native perennial with flat-topped, bright orange or yellow flower clusters at the ends of its stems or in its leaf axils. From midsummer to autumn, it produces clusters of brightly colored flowers that attract insects, followed by fruit and showy seed. Plant in a border, meadow, butterfly garden, or wildflower garden.  Makes a great cut flower too.   This plant’s milky white sap may irritate skin. Its stiff, thick branches may act as treillage to support weaker neighboring plants.   May be slow to emerge in spring.    They have taproots and resent disturbance.  Zone 3
