Butterfly Weed, Butterfly Flower

Certified organically grown. 50 seeds/pkt.

Strikingly beautiful herb, with tresses of deep yellow and orange flowers, sometimes nearly red.

Flowers to 3 feet tall.

Herbaceous perennial native to the American prairies.

Hardy to -20 degrees F.

Attracts Monarch Butterflies and provides nectar to the bees.

The root (as suggested by the species name) delves deep and is very tough. It has a peculiar odor.

The herb is seldom used in current herbal practice, and is mainly planted for display.

Sow the seed in the early spring.

The seed is a cold-soil germinator. If you are not planting in the early spring, or garden in a warmer climate and warm soil, then it is best to pre-treat the seeds in moist medium in the refrigerator (not the freezer) for 2 weeks before sowing warm.

Germination is relatively fast and quite rewarding, as the seedlings are large and characteristically shaped.

Tap-rooted plants are best sown in-situ, in the garden bed.

Plant prefers full sun and regular watering.

Will survive in low-fertility areas and will cohabit happily with grasses.

These large plants are best spaced at least 2 feet apart.
