    As a host plant for the Monarch Butterfly it is an easy choice to plant Butterfly Weed if you want to attract loads of butterflies to your garden! This easy to grow perennial is native to meadow areas in most of the United States from California to Wisconsin all the way to Maine and Florida! Bright Orange clusters of flowers sit atop of this clump forming perennial. If you want butterflies in your garden planting this native perennial is a must!

    Butterfly Weed can be slow to sprout. It can take up to 4-6 weeks in order for above ground growth to appear.

    The butterfly weed is growing nicely, but it is not orange. It is a pale pink color, which is disappointing. But the bees and butterflies like them, so as long as they're happy, I'm okay. I was really looking forward to the contrast of the orange against our purple clematis, though.

    Dormant plant still looks good in June

    Pros:
    • good price
    • healthy plant
    • still dormant when shipped
    • large
    Cons:
    Ordered on Saturday June 10, when butterflyweed was on clearance. To my delight the root which arrived Weds June 14 is in great shape, not dehydrated, packed in a sachet of very slightly damp potting mix, and very much alive. About 7 inches long, and just starting to come out of dormancy. Kudos to HBF for knowing how to store their plants. It's in the ground now and I'll post updates if the website lets me.

    All 4 looked great

    I ordered these with some coneflower bare roots. These looked the best out of the whole order, they had great color, some small sprouts at the top, and lengthy healthy roots. I have them planted and can’t wait to see what happens.

    The butterfly weed (2) I grew last year really took off and grew well. Unfortunately aphids killed mine late in the season. I tried controlling them but wasn't successful. I'm trying again this year though because they (not the aphids, lol) really were healthy and bloomed well initially. I hope to have better luck this year.
