More Information

Description The brilliant orange flowers on Orange Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) bloom continuously through the summer, serving as a beacon for pollinators! These flowers will have your garden buzzing, especially with Monarch butterflies. Clusters of flowers stand tall above green, lance-shaped leaves. Flowers give way to seed pods, which are filled with silky, wind-dispersed seeds. This native perennial is easy to grow, deer resistant, and drought-tolerant, making it a great choice for any gardener! Maintenance is a breeze, and it is generally disease-free. Butterfly weed is ideal for meadow gardens, native plantings, and wildlife sanctuaries. Plant it in a sunny spot to support your local pollinators! Details Botanical name: Asclepias tuberosa

they made it right

I was unable to edit my previous review, but wanted to update. There must have been a miscommunication with the emails, but that happens. I am pleased that I heard back and that my money was refunded. Additionally, they were pleasant about it. It is so nice to deal with a company that is willing to take responsibility and address the issue.

Never again

I sent this information in an email TWICE to the company with no response. My email also included photos. I gave them an opportunity to rectify, but no reply. My plants arrived looking beat up with broken branches and the dirt out of the pot. Which makes sense when you consider that they were packed sideways in the box. I waited for a few days before planting in hopes that company would replace. When I got no response I planted them. It’s only been a short time, but they don’t look great. Starting to wither. Terrible quality and terrible customer service. I will never order from them again.

Hello, we apologize that you received plants in poor condition. Your order does fall under our 60-day warranty so we would be happy to replace or refund them. Our small customer service team is working through emails and responds within 2-3 business days. We sent a response to your emails on Monday. Please take a look at our email so we can work with you to make this right. Happy Gardening!

Grew Beautifully the First Year

I bought three plants and all three grew and bloomed beautifully the first summer. Planted in full sun and they bloomed well into early fall. I saw more happy bees and butterflies in my yard than I've seen in the four years I've lived here, and spotted quite a few monarch caterpillars munching away.

My milkweed plants

Received the package with the plants in it, open it up and they look great. Put the plants outside for a day or so until I could plant in in my garden and lo and behold the Chipmunks made a meal out of them. Brought them inside and put them in the window hopefully they might survive but unfortunately they didn't. Will probably try again in the spring.
