UPDATE: After 4 years, Butterfly Milkweed has done well, and appears in bunches in four or five places along the fence. It's one of our favorites and we hope it continues to spread.
I love BUTTERFLY MILKWEED because it provides a spot of unusually bright orange in a garden of mostly yellow and lavender. Not to mention, it really does seem to attract butterflies. We've seen many more butterflies and birds in our yard this summer. We've only had three or four of the pretty orange blossoms this year (and none last summer), but we're hoping it will spread and we'll have more throughout the gardens next year.
