The blooming period of Butterfly Weed typically falls between late spring and early fall.

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.
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.
