I ordered 3 Asclepias Tuberose Orange to add to my mailbox garden and to ensure my color theme continues from spring to autumn. The plants arrived in excellent condition. I'm looking forward to their highly reputable performance this summer

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.
