Fairly easy to replicate, this attractive plant combination includes a couple of spectacular elements which almost thrive on neglect while providing striking color and contrast for weeks. Among them is Geranium 'Rozanne', an exceptional, unique and unsurpassed geranium selection with one of the longest flowering periods of any of the hardy geraniums. It is paired with Asclepias tuberosa (Butterfly Weed), a bushy perennial prized for its brilliant clusters of bright orange flowers which bloom continuously throughout summer.
Low maintenance, pest and disease-free, deer and drought tolerant, this planting will attract scores of butterflies. Milkweed plants are critical to the monarch butterflies survival, whose population in North America has plummeted by 90% in the last 20 years. By planting milkweed in your own garden, you can help reverse the fortune of these beautiful insects!
