These wildflowers are really bright! Brilliant orange clusters top rich, glossy leaves that climb alternately up the stems. It is a gracious host for the Monarch Butterfly caterpillars. You can be sure you'll add a blaze of color to your property with this one!

Some Native American legends tell of the roots being used as a body wash for lifting and running strength. Also used as a drug in chant lotion, and as a ceremonial emetic. Asclepias tuberosa has a long history of use as a valuable alternative medicine and is one of the most important of the indigenous American species. Butterfly Weed is used internally in the treatment of diarrhea, dysentery, chronic rheumatism, and as an expectorant. It has a specific action on the lungs, making it a valuable medicinal herb in all chest complaints and in the treatment of many lung diseases.
