A virtually hassle free perennial! The tangerine blooms (sometimes in shades of red or yellow) appear early summer and last through to late summer. The flowers, which are heavily laden with nectar and pollen, are particularly attractive to hummingbirds, Monarch butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects. Deadheading the flowers will stimulate another bloom cycle about a month after the first one. Gather bouquets of Asclepias all summer long: the long stems are perfect for cutting, and are long-lasting. Sear the ends of the cut stems over a flame to prevent the milky sap from leaking out. Following the flowers, green fruits develop which rupture to reveal seeds with long, silvery-white, silky hairs. The seed pods are great to use in dried flower arrangements.
