Plant Features
Tuberosa Asclepias Plants produce brilliant orange flower clusters that grow atop upright stems with narrow, lance-shaped leaves. Unlike many of the other milkweeds, this species does not have milky-sapped stems. The flowers are a source of nectar for many butterflies, hummingbirds and bees while its leaves are a food source for monarch caterpillar, and wild birds us fiber from the plant to create their nests. Tuberosa is a drought-tolerant variety that grows well in average to sandy or rocky soils. It is one of the most popular Asclepias plants grown.

Comment: Three plans ordered, all arrived healthy and transplanted easily. Pluses: Healthy plants, well described on line. Minuses: Plants ordered 4/23, credit card immediately charged although plants were not shipped until mid June. Not a common practice with other companies I deal with. Would order from them again, but would keep this in mind.
