Asclepias tuberosa, also known as Butterfly Milkweed, is a perennial wildflower native to Michigan. This stunning plant reaches 2 feet tall and flowers from June to July with clusters of orange blossoms. It prefers full sun but tolerates part sun, is fine with medium to dry soil, and will grow in loam or sand. Drought tolerant. Butterfly Milkweed does well in poor, dry soils. Water it regularly when you first plant it, but once new growth appears, taper off watering. This plant does not like rich, moist soil.

As a host plant for Monarch Butterflies, as well as a number of other beneficial insects, Butterfly Milkweed is a must-have in a native garden. Its bright orange flowers attract pollinators, both bees and butterflies. A quart will include 1 individual plant.
