Silky Gold is a tropical butterfly weed which grows to 3 ft. tall and spreads to 1 ft. wide. Plants produce luminous, golden-yellow, umbel-type flower heads from summer right up until frost.
Silky Gold butterfly weed is an excellent choice for accent and background plantings. Don't confuse Silky Gold with the common butterfly weed, which is not nearly so showy.
