Cat# 1019 Butterfly Weed has striking brilliant orange flowers which color our fields in early to mid summer. The flower clusters may be up to 11/2 feet wide, and established plants may form clumps 3 feet wide and 2 feet tall. This perennial does best in full sun and a dry, well-drained location. It would make a good accent plant in a dry spot in the perennial border, natural area, or meadow. Butterfly Weed with its long tap root resents being moved and it is late to break dormancy; so give it a permanent spot and be patient in the spring. Butterfly Weed flowers are excellent as fresh cut flowers. And of course, they are magnets for butterflies, especially monarchs.
