Hello Yellow Milkweed

 

  Asclepias tuberosa.

 

Flowers are golden yellow and displayed in a flat-topped arrangement providing a nectar-rich feast for a variety of pollinators, especially the monarch butterfly. This easy to maintain, long-lived perennial likes full sun in well-drained, even gritty soil and tolerates dry conditions. For long lasting cut flowers sear the ends of the stem with a flame. Stimulate a second bloom cycle by deadheading. Grows to 20-24”.
