These bright orange, fragrant flowers will attract butterflies and other beneficial insects to your garden space. Part of the Milkweed family, Butterfly weed, or Asclepias tuberosa, is a native prairie plant that is perfect for the perennial garden. Despite the fact that its foliage is very slow to emerge in the spring, it is one of the most striking of all wildflowers and its brilliant orange flowers appear in the hottest part of the summer. Very hardy, it does well on medium to very dry soils but will not grow well on poorly drained soils so good drainage is essential. The flowers are very ornate and will draw Monarch Butterflies to come and feed on the leaves. You'll be doing the Monarch Butterfly a huge favour by providing them with this plant to feed on because they will incorporate some of the toxins in the leaves into their bodies and this makes them taste bad so that bird predators will leave them alone! Butterfly weed makes a wonderful cut flower and its seed pods are valued in dried flower arrangements.
