As the name suggests, in addition to being a garden favorite, Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) is also a favorite wildflower among butterflies, being the larval host of Monarch and Queen butterflies. Asclepias tuberosa may not have the milky sap characteristic of other members of the milkweed family, but its bold orange-yellow blossoms grow in clusters that are sure to interest both pollinators and passers-by. Despite its name, milkweed is not considered a weed in gardens; it’s valued for its ecological benefits.

What Does Milkweed Look Like

Butterfly Milkweed grows 1 to 2 feet tall with slender, branching stems and long, narrow, dark green leaves. Its bright orange to yellow-orange flowers bloom from early summer to early fall in rounded clusters. Unlike many milkweeds, it doesn’t have a milky sap. The plant’s fruit is a slender pod containing seeds with white, silky hairs for wind dispersal. Resistant to deer and drought tolerant, this perennial is native to the central and eastern United States and parts of Canada and does best in full sun conditions with well-drained soil. It blooms from late spring to late summer (May-Sept)
