Hello Yellow is the first truly yellow native Asclepias. And its hue just happens to enhance the colors of its favorite visitor, the monarch butterfly, to perfection! You can’t help but smile as this drought-resistant, nicely salt-tolerant, free flowering plant seems to grow wings with the myriad of honey bees and butterflies so irresistibly drawn to it. Even the seed pods, if left to their own devices, will sprout wings and blow away. We do not use any pesticides that may be harmful to pollinators on our Hello Yellow asclepias plants!
