Asclepias tuberosa

I bought two Asclepias in 2013 because they were covered in bees in a new garden centre and add great colour to my Hot bed. This one is supposedly hardy (the other isn't) but they are both in the ground and we'll see. They are also supposed to attract butterflies hence one of their common names - butterfly weed - but so far the bees have loved them but the butterflies ignored them. See blog on bad plant labels.
