A fragrant, native North American plant which is easy to grow and super attractive to monarch butterflies! Roberta’s 3 piece North American Butterfly Blossom collection is a winter hardy gem that blooms forth bouquets of beautiful rosy pink, blazing orange, and lovely white flowers from mid-summer through fall. Asclepias 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. Cinderella’s rich rosy pink flowers stand tall and erect growing about three to four feet tall atop dark green foliage. Apollo Orange produces large 6” vibrant orange flower umbels; you can expect up to twenty stems covered in flowers once your plants have fully matured.

I purchased these last summer, I only got the orange flowers, the plants grew in full sun over 4' tall! The flowered all Summer well into November and the first frost. The stalks are very strong and don't need staking, they were just beautiful and YES they did attract some butterflies! They require minimal maintenance. Just take off the dead leaves come springtime. DONT need to be cut back. Sweet!!!

I purchased these last year and every plant did very well. It was a great addition to my butterfly gardens. These took very little care.
