Tuberosa Asclepias Plant

The 'Tuberosa' Asclepias Plant produces flower clusters that are brilliant orange, sometimes tending to be very reddish-orange, depending upon the moisture and sunshine available. This variety is most often called Butterfly Weed because it is believed the colors, orange and red, are more attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. The flowers are long-lasting in cut arrangements and their fragrant nature brings a hint of the outside, inside. This brightly-colored native milkweed plant has no milky sap and is just as salt-tolerant as her other relatives. Each 3-inch pot contains one Tuberosa Asclepias plant. More details...

Comment: I looked locally and online for the milkweeds for our new butterfly garden. These were by far the best priced ones I found. When they arrived, I was amazed by the way they were packaged! They arrived within just a couple of days and were in perfect condition. I will definitely purchase again from you soon.

"Happy returning customer-Asclepias plants this time!"

Comment: I returned to Garden Harvest because I had such a positive experience last year. I had placed an order in late spring and the plants arrived in great condition despite warmer temperatures, and beautifully packed for shipment. This order exceeded my experience of last year. There was absolutely NO transplant shock. Thank you.
