Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa ) is a host plant for the Monarch butterfly (host plants are the only plants that the caterpillars can live on) and the others listed above.

It grows best in a dry and sunny location. Mature plants in ideal locations can make as many as 20 stems at an average height of 2.’ The vivid orange color, low-mounded profile, and ability to attract and sustain butterflies make this plant a well-known favorite for all types of gardens. Butterfly weed has an interesting and unusual flower structure. Plant it among other mid-sized perennials.
