Milkweed Orange Butterfly Flower
Orange Butterfly Flower is the iconic, bright orange beauty that’s a staple in every butterfly garden. This showy native wildflower is easy to grow, cold hardy, and does well in poor, dry soils. Long-lasting clusters of small, flat-topped flowers are crowned with a yellow, sun-kissed “corona” and bloom from June through August.
Butterfly Weed is an important nectar source for Monarch butterflies and its leaves provide essential food for developing Monarch caterpillars – but expect to see a variety of pollinators making use of this plant.
