Wave at Your New Hello Yellow Butterfly Plant

  • Golden Yellow-Orange Blooms
  • Long Bloom Period
  • Food For Monarch Butterflies
  • Deer and Rabbit Resistant Native

The Hello Yellow Butterfly Plant (Asclepias tuberosa 'Hello Yellow') has all the advantages of the native wildflower, but with the added appeal of shockingly bright yellow flowers, which bloom from July through August.

Butterflies love to visit this brilliant flower for nectar, and the foliage of the Asclepias varieties is the only thing Monarch butterfly caterpillars will eat. They will also attract beneficial bees and hummingbirds as well.

These plants have deep taproots and are best left undisturbed once established. The foliage is often slow to emerge in spring. It's widely adaptable to different soil types and once established, Hello Yellow requires very little care.

Though it is perfectly cold hardy the northern regions, mulching plants in winter will help prevent frost heaving, as well as aid in moisture retention throughout the rest of the year. In spring, trim back last year's growth and await the beautiful new foliage that will appear a bit later than other perennials.

Following the fabulous flowers, typical Milkweed seed pods develop on the Butterfly Weed, which rupture to reveal seeds with long, silvery-white, silky hairs. This variety may self-propagate if the seed pods are not removed.

Hello Yellow is tolerant of both wet and dry soils and needs plenty of sunshine to bloom heavily. You don't need to worry about deer or rabbits with this variety.

The Hello Yellow Butterfly Plant looks amazing in mass plantings, mixed beds and borders. You can deadhead some, after the first flush of blooms, to encourage additional flowering. They make wonderful fresh or dried cut flowers.
