How to Say Tuberosa Asclepias Plant (Butterfly Milkweed)
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 use fiber from the plant to create their nests. Tuberosa is a drought-tolerant variety that grows well in average to sandy or rocky soils. Milky sap can cause dermatitis if in contact with sensitive individuals. It is one of the most popular Asclepias plants grown.
