butterfly seed

Asclepias tuberosa or Butterfly Weed is a great native perennial. Mature clumps do not need any coddling once established. These seedpods are striking but it is prized, of course, for its Monarch attracting flower clusters.

Starting them from seed is not a bad idea since their long taproots make them resistant to transplanting.
