Description / Gay Butterflies Butterfly Weed Seeds

Giant flowerheads, more than 5 inches across, in vivid shades of red, yellow, and orange blanket these strong plants from June right up through frost. So floriferous that you can pick all you want and still have more than enough for the butterflies to enjoy.

This plant is a trouble free wonder in the sunny garden, blooming unchecked through the most severe heat and drought. Winter-hardy as well, Gay Butterflies returns for years to repeat its glorious show.

As its name suggest, this plant grows effortlessly—just direct sow the seeds in fall or early spring and wait for the show. Asking only sun and plenty of it, butterfly weed laughs at heat and drought, survives winter unscathed, and is long-lived. It reaches 2 feet tall and about 2 feet wide, with a lush, rangy form that complements other plantings nicely. And the blooms are super for cutting.

Germination
Review by Addicted to perennials
Took a little longer to germinate, compared to other butterfly weed. Also some germinated much sooner then others.

Review by joe
Have had this plant for about 3 years now and ended up planting about 100 of them as the monarchs lay their eggs on them. My monarch population is growing every year, the only bad thing about them is they tend to get a lot of yellow I believe aphids, but they don't bother any other plants so it's ok with me.
