'Hello Yellow' Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) is the perfect way to welcome pollinators to the garden. Showy clusters of bright yellow flowers are loaded with fragrance and nectar, serving as a beacon for butterflies. This long-blooming native keeps flowering all summer, providing nearly 3 months of blooms. Flowers give way to showy seed pods. The best part? Unlike other milkweeds, this variety doesn't exude a milky sap from the stems. Try using the fresh flowers and seed pots in cut arrangements! 

Milkweeds, including 'Hello Yellow' Milkweed, are essential for the Monarch lifecycle. Their relationship includes more than just swapping nectar for pollination. Caterpillars exclusively feed on their leaves, which are filled with cardenolides. Cardenolides are stored in the bodies of Monarch caterpillars and butterflies as a defense against predators. Without Milkweed, we wouldn't have Monarchs!

Moisture sensitive

I ordered 4 of these and was negligent in watching their water needs in their pots. One died from lack of water while the other three were drooping. I hope whenI get them planted in my very dry yard they make it.

Very disappointed

My 5 Hello Yellow Milkweed arrived today in horrible condition. Wilted, broken stems, and just in really, really sad shape. It looked as though they quickly dug the plants out of a garden, shoved it in a plastic container, threw some soil in and sent them off. Definitely will not be ordering from this company again!!

Very happy!

Great selection of plants at reasonable prices. Extremely well packaged. All of the plants are thriving 2 months later! We got two different kinds of milkweed with this order.
