Collection: Asclepia (Butterfly Weed)

Asclepia is a carefree, long-lived N. American native that is highly resistant to deer and quite drought tolerant. Dense clusters of blooms are produced from early summer through early fall, with even more encouraged by cutting back the spent blooms.All of these sterling qualities are nearly beside the point for this special plant. Asclepias is the only plant the monarch butterfly will lay her eggs on - thus is it a crucial ingredient to supporting monarch populations. Plant Asclepias and expect your garden to become very popular with a variety of butterflies and hummingbirds.
