The blooming period of Butterfly Weed typically falls between late spring and early fall. During these months, the plant erupts in clusters of bright orange flowers, attracting a variety of pollinators. The long bloom time ensures that your garden remains colorful and lively throughout the growing season.

Flower Color

The flowers bloom in vivid shades of orange, sometimes tinged with yellows and reds. These eye-catching colors not only enrich your garden’s aesthetic but also act as a beacon for butterflies, particularly the Monarch, and other beneficial insects.

Hardiness Zone

Butterfly Weed thrives in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 through 9. Its adaptability to various soil types and resilience to drought conditions make it a suitable choice for gardens across a wide geographic range. However, it’s essential to consider your specific climate and soil conditions for best results.

    Seeds sprouted great. Plants grew pretty quick and I even got a couple flowers (first year). Can’t wait to see how the plants fill out next spring/summer.
