This is a stunningly beautiful form of our US native Asclepias tuberosa that we obtained from Ellen Horning of Seneca Hill Perennials when she closed her nursery. The 20" tall x 2' wide clumps are topped with branched terminal clusters of dark red-orange flowers in early summer...very drought tolerant!
