Orange Butterfly Milkweed For Sale | Asclepia Tuberosa

Asclepias Tuberosa (butterfly milkweed) is a beautiful perennial native to the dry and rocky open spaces of Missouri. Clusters of bright yellow-to-orange flowers dance atop tall stems, enticing the butterflies that give it the common name butterfly weed. Naturally tolerant and well adapted to compacted soil conditions, this stunner adds fragrance and texture to the landscape while providing an important food source for the Monarch butterfly.

Chosen as the Plant of the Year in 2017 by the Perennial Plant Association, orange butterfly weed makes a great addition to floral arrangements and is also attractive to both bees and hummingbirds. Partial to dry, well-drained soils, with long lasting blooms from early to mid-summer. A favorite milkweed of butterflies.

5 of 6 bulbs grew well. Will wait to see if the 6th might happen next year.

Thank you for your review! I am pleased the Asclepias - Orange is growing well for you, but sad to hear about the one bareroot not growing. We do have a guarantee in place that covers the first growing season. Please give that one a bit more time, and reach out to us at if it does not grow in the first growing season. Happy Gardening!

Great purchase

Product got here in a timely manner. First purchase with so didn't know what to expect. Great I am just waiting for them to come up so I can brag on how good they look but that will be later. Packaged and prepared nicely. I was very satisfied. Not everyday do you get the "bang from your buck" that you expected.

Thank you for your review. Welcome to the Easy To Grow Bulbs family! We are pleased to hear you are satisfied with your purchase. Happy Gardening!
