Butterfly Folly

I have one little stalk of Butterfly Weed (asclepias tuberosa) although I suspect it will spread by next year which will delight me because the butterflies love this plant! Which just proves the old saying, one gardener's weed is another gardener's treasure!

I planted Butterfly Weed this year too and it is rather small, but I am hoping it will be fuller next year. Great photo.

I have often seen this plant on US blogs but I have never seen it in the UK. I think it is difficult to find, though I found some seeds so I might give it a try.

Lovely photo. Best wishes Sylvia (England)
