Description

Developed from a native North American wildflower, this is an important source of food for Monarch butterflies. The plant forms an upright clump of narrow green leaves, bearing showy clusters of golden-yellow flowers in mid to late summer. Green fruit will develop after flowering which break open to reveal seeds with the same long silvery-white, silky hairs as its cousin, the common milkweed. The seedpods are excellent used in dried arrangements (pick and dry while still green).  Attractive to all butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and other beneficial insects. Deadhead flowers to stimulate another bloom. Very late to come up in the spring, so plant daffodils or other companion bulbs to mark the spot.
