Irresistible tricolor delight
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.
