Butterfly weed

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
