Asclepias
COMMON NAME: Butterfly Plant
COLOR: yellow
HEIGHT: 14-22"
LOCATION: sun
DURATION: July-August
USE: Butterfly gardens, etc.
GROWTH HABIT: This Butterfly Plant has all the advantages of the native wildflower but with the added appeal of shockingly bright yellow flowers. Butterflies love to visit this flower for nectar and the foliage of Asclepias is the only thing Monarch butterfly caterpillars will eat. Asclepias is tolerant of both wet and dry soils and needs plenty of sunshine to bloom heavily.
ZONE: 4-9
SIZE: #1 root
 
 

Perennials
The first year they sleep;
the second year they creep;
the third year they leap.
