How to Say Tuberosa Asclepias
Plant Features

Tuberosa is a busy, low-growing butterfly milkweed that produces brilliant orange flower clusters that grow atop upright stems with narrow, lance-shaped leaves. It is a drought-tolerant variety that grows well in average to sandy or rocky soils. Unlike many of the other milkweeds, Tuberosa does not have milky-sapped stems. It is our most popular milkweed good reason! Butterflyweed flowers are a source of nectar for many butterflies, hummingbirds and bees. It is a host plant monarch caterpillar, and wild birds use fiber from the plant to create their nests


Common Names: Orange Milkweed, Asclepias Tuberosa, Butterflyweed, Butterfly Milkweed, Orange Butterfly Weed


Asclepias Companion Plants: Aster, Echinacea, Kniphofia, Salvia


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. Deadheading the first flush of flowers promotes additional blooms. If you don’t want the plant to self-seed, remove all flowers once they are finished blooming. Plants can be cut back to the ground once they drop their leaves. Spring is a good time to fertilize.

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!
