Size 2 gallon, Red Butterflies Tropical Milkweed
Asclepias curassavica 'Red Butterflies'
Clusters of attractive buds open to bright scarlet-red and yellow flowers. This easy care, well-behaved plant needs little attention and provides wonderful color. Tolerates poor, unimproved soils. Prune to the base in fall, especially if it does not go dormant naturally in your climate. This prevents Monarch butterflies from feeding at the wrong time of year. An herbaceous perennial.
