Butterfly Weed

Butterfly Weed is popular with people and butterflies. Magnificent bright orange flowers appear in summer for many weeks.

It is a butterfly magnet and a good host plant for Monarch Butterfly larvae.

This deer-resistant native thrives in a hot, well drained location.

Best to transplant when small, due to its long roots.

Grows 24-36 inches tall and 12-18 inches wide.
