Grow this North American native for the sweet scent, the butterflies, bees, and the beautiful mid- to late-season colour. Allow the Monarch butterfly larvae to munch all the leaves they want and watch them pupate. The plant will return next spring. Easy from seed with winter-sowing. Won't reliably re-seed in one area, since the fluffy seedheads travel long distances in the wind. Does well in moist locations as well as regular garden soil. Extremely hardy.

Asclepias incarnata

Hardiness zone: 3-8
