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...

"Delightful Plant"

Comment: I ordered one Tuberosa Asclepias plant from Garden Harvest Supply (GHS) and am very impressed with it. It is one tough plant. It was such a tiny plant in its 3” pot when I received it from GHS last spring that after I transplanted it into my garden, I accidentally stepped on it…twice. However, it bounced right back and bloomed very well. The butterflies seemed to enjoy it. Now I it is covered in these long okra-like seed pods that are beginning to open up and release their fluffy white seeds tha... More details

"Excellent Tuberosa Plant"

Comment: This was my first purchase with Garden Harvest Supply and I am very happy with the plants I received. They were packaged so carefully the plants weren't stressed at all. They were a very good size for planting and they were in excellent health. I would order from Garden Harvest Supply again.

Comment: I ordered 9 milkweed plants. They arrived on time and in great condition! My only issue is that I paid the additional amount to ensure 3 day shipping and the order wasn't processed as quickly as expected.
