Butterfly Milkweed

A classic native pollinator plant, butterfly weed, is the 2017 Perennial Plant of the Year, as voted by the Perennial Plant Association. This long-lived and easy perennial provides bright orange (sometimes yellow) flowers all summer long in sunny, dry places. It is the preferred nectar plant for monarch butterflies, but bees and other beneficial insects also seek its pollen and nectar.
