Asclepias tuberosa / Butterfly Milkweed

$9.00

This stunning milkweed is one of our most vivid wildflowers. Pollinators are as attracted to it as we are, and it is a host plant for monarch caterpillars and milkweed tussock moth caterpillars. Used in herbal medicine for bronchitis and other conditions. An extremely long-lived plant, but only in well-drained, friable soils with ample sun.  In the wild, its long taproot resprouts after fire and it thrives where flames have removed competition. Deer resistant, non-aggressive.

Height: 2′ – 3′        Blooms: June – August

Habitat: Well-drained, sun to part sun

Provenance: NJ
