Asclepias tuberosa

Butterfly Weed

This strong-growing perennial native to Eastern North America is a favorite of gardeners.  Flower color can range from yellow to almost red but bright orange is typical.  It is best grown in a sunny location with well drained soil and will flower over an extended period especially if cut back to abort the formation of the long seed pods which open to release fluffy "parachutes" by which the wind widely distributes the attached seeds.
