Item details

Here I am offering Seeds from Asclepias tuberosa, also known as Butterfly Milkweed, Butterfly Weed, and Pleurisy Root. Unlike many of the other milkweeds, this one prefers a dryer soil and must be planted in full sun. Another major difference between this plant and other milkweed is that this one does not have a milky sap. The orange and yellow blooms are out from mid Summer to early Fall. This milkweed attracts all kinds of wildlife, bringing in several different birds, bees, and butterflies. The hummingbirds are especially interested in this plant. This Plant is a Host Plant for the Monarch and the Queen butterflies. In places where there is no oleander Asclepias tuberosa is used as a larval host by the Polka-Dot Wasp Moth. It has been used as a larval host for the Cycnia collaris and Unexpected Cycnia Moths. It attracts a whole assortment of butterflies as a nectar source. Documented nectar sources include the Gray Cooper, Banded Hairstreak, and Phaon Crescent butterflies. Common names include Canada Root, Chieger Flower, Chiggerflower, Fluxroot, Indian Paintbrush, Indian Posy, Orange Milkweed, Orange root, Orange Swallow wort, Silky Swallow wort, Tuber Root, Yellow Milkweed, White root, Windroot, Butterfly Love, and Butterflyweed. USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 10
