Showy clusters of vivid orange with attractive, slender leaves on tall, slightly arching stems. Foliage is larva food for the Monarch butterfly and the flowers attract hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. Current research indicates that planting this cultivar in the Midwest is not detrimental to Monarch populations as it may be elsewhere, but we encourage supplementing with native Asclepias species.
