Butterfly Weed has fragrant orange flat-top flowers with gold overtones at the ends of the stems from mid to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its narrow leaves remain green in color throughout the season. This native perennial is one of the hosts for the Monarch Butterfly to lay its eggs and be a food source for the caterpillars. Flowers give way to interesting seed heads filled with white fluffy seeds that will spread in the wind.
