Tuberosa is a busy, low-growing butterfly milkweed that produces brilliant orange flower clusters that grow atop upright stems with narrow, lance-shaped leaves.

Tuberosa Asclepias Plant Care Instructions: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 3-4 weeks after transplanting. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy.

Comment: One could not hope for a more lovingly shipped plant! Every plant I've ever received from GrowJoy has been packed with Ace Ventura, Pet Detective in mind (remember the scene as he masqueraded as a UPS driver, treating a fragile box with wild abandon??). And then there's the treat of discovering the plant inside. I have been babying my new plants while waiting to get them into a new landscape cannot wait to see my results next year!
