Butterfly weed is a long lived, low maintenance, well behaved addition to a garden. Plant in groups of three for a striking effect. It is named for the multitude of butterflies attracted to the abundant amount of nectar that it produces as well as being a host plant to the monarch butterfly. Butterfly weed has a deep tap root so it does not transplant well once established.
