The Butterfly Flower, also known as Milkweed, is a cold hardy, perennial flower known for its ability to attract numerous species of Butterfly. Monarch butterflies and caterpillars, in particular, find the butterfly flower to be an essential food source. Unlike the naturally occurring milkweed you may see on the edges of your field, this Butterfly Flower grows vibrant-orange clusters of blooms that are showy in any garden space. Plant is a sunny spot with well drained soil, and the Butterfly Flower will thrive. This variety does not contain the milky sap, but it is still toxic so it is extremely deer resistant.
