2/10/17 :: 2017 Perennial Plant of the Year ::
Asclepias tuberosaLooking ahead to the 2017 season, we wanted to remind everyone again of the PPA's (Perennial Plant Association) Perennial Plant of the Year award for 2017. They have chosen Asclepias tuberosa for 2017, and for good reasons. The PPA chooses a perennial plant each year which exhibits qualities exceeding those of most perennials, and even though Asclepias tuberosa has been available for as long as most can remember, it is a worthy choice for the award. Not particularly well-known, Asclepias tuberosa (Butterfly Milkweed) is an easy-to-grow perennial that is especially adaptable to dry and poor soils, although it can tolerate somewhat heavier soils as well. It is very winter-reliable for our area (even if it does break dormancy quite late), and it produces clusters of distinctive orange flowers in mid to late summer. It typically grows to a height of 18-24", and only needs about 18-24" of space as well. But probably the claim to fame known by most is that Asclepias tuberosa (and other Asclepias species) are highly recommended for the habitat support of butterflies, especially the Monarch butterfly. The flower clusters are great for other pollinators as well, so check them out when you visit us in the spring!
