Me, too, please, Auralie. I could trade you some of the A incarnata if you'd like.

You're right, Bonnie. A tuberosa is lovely - that bright, hot orange knocks you're socks off!
That's saying a lot coming from a cool-color-preference gardener.

Me, too. One of our milkweed seen by the highways and in fields is
Asclepias tuberosa, a bright orange; I wish the common name wasn't
"Butterfly weed" as it is oft-putting to many newer gardeners. It likes
hot, dry areas so is good for a drought resistant beds. We also have
Asclepias incarnata, A. quadrifolia, and A variegata.

Of course, some of the people who want me to get rid of my
beloved milkweed are the same ones who will pay dollars for
the pods. If mine make good pods and seed this fall - they
don't always - I'll be glad to share seeds. Just remind me in
the fall - my memory isn't what it once was.
