What Houzz contributors are saying:

Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Great Design Plant: Milkweed
Butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa, zones 4 to 7). Here is another milkweed species, shorter than the others (2 feet by 2 feet). For me and area experts, it's not a favorable plant for monarchs or other nectaring insects — it does tolerate dry and other problem soils, however.

It attracts butterflies. I need to create a butterfly garden at my new house. I brought my milkweed pods from my old house. It's been difficult because of my 1st hip surgery, and now I need a second surgery... It would be so nice to be able to watch all the Monarchs again...
