Butterflyweed Seed - Heirloom
Butterflyweed / Botanical Name: Asclepias tuberosa
Description: Beautiful bright orange flowers cover the plant from mid-summer until early fall. Attracts bees, hummingbirds, moths, and butterflies. Blooms reliably from seed the first year if sown early. Plants will reach 2-3' in dry sandy soil and in well drained loams.
Planting: Sow seeds indoors just beneath surface of soil in pots. Germination will occur with no treatment but benefits from cold stratification. Do not overwater. Transplant outdoors 12-24" apart when light frost is still possible.
