How to Plant BUTTERFLY WEED Seeds

Comments: Full sun. Asclepias incarnata (Milkmaid and Soulmate) thrive in moist, even wet soils, will easily adapt to average garden watering. Asclepias tuberosa (Orange and Gay Butterflies) tolerate heat and drought, require only occasional water once established, will happily accept average moisture with good drainage. All of our Butterfly Weeds attract butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and are important nectar sources for a wide range of butterflies, most notably the Monarch. To promote Monarch butterfly caterpillars, Asclepias incarnata is the host most preferred by these magnificent butterflies. Plants are deer and rabbit resistant.
