Pleurisy Root.Butterfly Weed.

Favorite food source for monarch butterflies, and a beautiful flower for the garden.

Attracts beneficial pest-fighting insects as well. Nice cut flower.

Remember that monarch butterflies start out as caterpillars with narrow black, white, and green, vertical stripes. They will stay on the butterfly weed and turn into glorious butterflies.

BOTANICAL NAME: Asclepias tuberosa

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

This perennial prefers full sun with regular or poor soil. Is drought-tolerant once established. Seeds should be sown in early spring or if in fall, give 2 weeks of cold-conditioning before planting. Best results from direct seeding; if transplanting, it must be done when plants are quite small, before the taproot is large.
