Attract a profusion of butterflies to your garden with the nectar rich blooms of Asclepias. This showy hardy perennial makes a fine choice for cottage garden borders and wildlife areas, offering a long season of interest from July right through to autumn. As the flowers fade, they are replaced by curious seed heads that make an intriguing addition to dried flower displays. Asclepias enjoy a moist, fertile soil, but shows surprising tolerance to dry conditions once established. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 60cm (24").
