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.

Butterfly Milkweed grows 1 to 2 feet tall and blooms from late spring to late summer (May-Sept). 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.
