Viewed by many as one of the most attractive prairie plants, Butterfly Milkweed displays orange clusters of dainty flowers. It is adapted to a large range, and once established, its deep, thick root system provides drought tolerance. It does not spread as aggressively as Common Milkweed. It attracts butterflies and makes a desirable landscape plant when started inside, then transplanted. Blooms may not appear until two to three years after planting. This perennial flower blooms June through September.
