Butterfly Weed 'Red' Seeds  

Butterfly Weed Butterflies are very attracted to asclepias, hence the common name. A vigorous, hardy, and rugged grower, plants are about two feet tall. The spiky leafed stem carries large bracts of dozens of red buds which turn orange as they open. It prefers full sun and a well-drained soil. An interesting and long lasting cut flower, the seed pod can also be useful as an everlasting. Perennial.
