Asclepias tuberosa - Butterfly Plant

Asclepias tuberosa - Butterfly Plant (Asclepias tuberosa - Butterfly Plant)

My butterfly plant is blooming even in November. It is a
short-lived sub-shrub which dies out in about 3 or 4 years.

Thanks! It's not as delicate as you is a tough
plant that pops up everywhere in my yard...
and some of my neighbors yards also.

Uma, thanks!
