This native and useful pollinator plant is uniquely attractive with a mound of deep orange flat-topped, two-toned blossoms (up to 5″ across). The copious amounts of nectar it provides to butterflies give it the common name ‘butterfly milkweed’. It forms a bushy shape and also can be used in borders.
Full sun, attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees.
