Product Overview

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. Ideal for naturalized areas, meadows, and borders. An herbaceous perennial.

Planting & Growing

Thrives in slightly sandy to loamy, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Prune to the base periodically to rejuvenate plant. In harsh winter areas below zone 8, grow in containers and move to a sunny indoor spot before first frost.
