Native Butterfly Bouquet Asclepia 6 pc.
Roberta’s 6 piece Native Asclepias Butterfly Bouquet is a winter hardy gem that blooms forth bouquets of beautiful rosy pink, shimmering white, and blazing orange flowers from mid-summer through fall. These perennials are known to attract monarch butterflies and hummingbirds galore! You will love the wildflower majesty of your Asclepias as they fill in your perennial gardens, meadows, or sunny borders. Asclepias is the only plant that acts as a host for the popular Monarch butterflies. These plants can help bring the population of monarchs back into good standing. Cinderella’s rich rosy pink flowers stand tall and erect growing about three to four feet tall atop dark green foliage. Tuberosa Orange produces large 6” vibrant orange flower umbels; you can expect up to twenty stems covered in flowers once your plants have fully matured. Ice Ballet produces beautiful white bloom clusters that produce a stark contrast to the bright green leaves. All three varieties are irresistible to butterflies, but are also equally irresistible to humans as they are wonderful cut flowers that last a long time in the vase.
