Plant Description

If you do not love the color orange (dare I suggest that in the midst of University of Tennessee Volunteers country?), then maybe the yellow Butterfly Weed, 'Hello Yellow', would appeal to you. Its flower colors range from lemony yellow to tangerine/yellow. Since these plants are seed grown, we don't know until they flower just exactly which shade of yellow they'll be. In all other respects, 'Hello Yellow' is just like orange Butterfly Weed - great for a sunny, dry, well drained spot.
