Butterfly Milkweed


Asclepias tuberosa

This is really a great plant. It’s shrubby. It has beautiful little flowers. The butterflies are constantly circling these plants. And they die back down to the ground in the winter, with the underground tuber (hence the name…) hanging out til next spring, when the plant comes back bigger and stronger and more flowers.

Plus it’s a milkweed.

Plus I like the dark green leaves with hints of red.

If after all that you still don’t like this, then I feel sorry for you.

Well, that was a little harsh. I apologize if anyone was offended by my previous remarks.
