Butterfly Asclepias - Bright Wings


Renee's Garden Exclusive

This mid to late summer heat-lover has big clusters of 1-inch blossoms in vivid scarlet-red, warm orange-red and gold. Butterflies visit the flowers constantly, unable to resist the large amounts of nectar waiting in their bright blossoms. Related to common butterfly weed, but much prettier, Bright Wings flowers are lovely in bouquets. Height: 2 - 3 feet (approx. 100 seeds/pkt)

Botanical name: Asclepias curassavica

IMPORTANT NOTE: Cut plants back to the ground if they don't die back with frost so overwintering foliage doesn't harbor and spread disease to butterflies.
