Butterfly weed is a hardy, drought-resistant, and dependable bloomer that will brighten any planting. A member of the milkweed (Asclepiadaceae) family, it is a larval host plant for monarch butterflies. By planting this in your garden, you will provide food for monarch caterpillars, as well as nectar for all kinds of adult butterflies and other pollinators. Its bright orange blooms are long-lasting, and it may rebloom if you deadhead spent blossoms. However, leave some blooms to ripen into seeds if you want this stellar plant to spread naturally in your landscape!
