Asclepias tuberosa, Butterfly Weed

Below you will find our signs for this native plant species. One is a quick reference and the other provides more detailed information. We hope these cards will help you select the best plant possible for your unique landscaping needs! Check out the Symbol Guide for even more details. We also offer Monarch Butterfly habitat signs in our Zazzle store that feature Asclepias tuberosa and other milkweed species.  Download our Quick Card, Plant Facts, or an Informative Brochure about the benefits of native plants (plus a special Butterfly Weed feature)!

Here’s a video of a Monarch Butterfly caterpillar we found on our first year Butterfly Weed. By the end of summer, over a dozen hatched from just a few potted plants! We relocated them to the Swamp Milkweed in our wet meadow to give the baby asclepias tuberosa a chance to grow.

Please keep this in mind when you come to visit! Planting the right plant in the right place makes all the difference when it comes to it’s ability to not only survive, but thrive! Make sure you are aware of what growing conditions your native plant requires before you take it home.
