The Ticket!

Bought three many years ago and still glad I did. Slow to spread but cast iron. Yellow cone flowers, red daylilies and this butterfly weed, that's the ticket.

Best for butterflies

It is a beautiful addition to my garden, and it attracts many butterflies and hummingbirds. If you are making a butterfly garden or just plain, consider getting these.
