‘Gay Butterflies’ is a delightful cultivar of Asclepias tuberosa (Butterfly Weed) featuring brilliantly colored flowers in shades of red, orange, and yellow. Native to Michigan and widely distributed throughout the United States, Butterfly Weed is a vigorous milkweed variety that produces clusters of flowers that bloom from early summer until frost. In addition to being a nectar favorite for hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies, Gay Butterflies is very fragrant and makes great cut flowers. Best grown in well draining soils in full sun, however, it will grow well even in poor soils as long as they are not wet for any length of time. Will flower well in part shade.

All of our plants are grown without the use of harmful pesticides and are safe for developing larvae.

Grown in 4.5″ square pot.

Available – May 2017.
