Asclepias 'Hello Yellow' Plants

Butterfly Weed



'Hello Yellow' is a wonderful addition to any garden. A cultivar of the native Asclepias, this plant has lovely golden yellow blooms that provide almost 3 months of color. Remember to deadhead after the first blooming to encourage more flowers.

An easy to grow native plant that will thrive in a hot and dry spot, butterfly weed will tolerate most garden soils. Asclepias is a wonderful addition to the fall garden ~ sunny yellow blooms of 'Hello Yellow' are perfect in a mixed border or left to go native in your meadow among the butterflies. An excellent food source for butterfly larvae, Asclepias are the best known North American Wildflowers.

We love to see this plant grown en mass - just a large swath of golden yellow blooms covered with butterflies is a sight to behold! You'll get long-lasting blooms followed by attractive seed pods in the fall, perfect for your dried arrangements.

Tips: This particular Asclepias is a unique host plant due to its finger-width foliage rather than the traditionally narrow foliage of other Asclepias. It can house a lot of eggs! Deer resistant and drought tolerant!
