Just about the only flower as easy to grow as native Butterfly Weed is this selection, large-flowered Hello Yellow! Massive flowerheads fill the summer garden over a long season, attracting every honeybee, butterfly, and hummingbird in the neighborhood. A long-lived perennial that thrives in sun and just about any kind of soil, Hello Yellow will become one of your most treasured plants, not only for its good looks but for its super-easy nature!

Hello Yellow delights with 3-inch flowerheads simply jammed with blooms. Showy seedpods follow the flowers, and these are useful in dried arrangements as well as pretty on the plant. Indifferent to heat, humidity, drought, poor soil, and more, Hello Yellow is just as carefree as a perennial can be, and it seems to flower all summer long! The visiting butterflies and hummers simply add to the color show. What a glory!

Expect Hello Yellow to reach 2 to 2½ feet tall and 2 feet wide, a nice size for the mixed border, blazing bed, or patio specimen. Unforgettable in a mass planting, the blooms are also good in fresh or dried displays, with good color retention and stiff texture.

And Hello Yellow is a snap to start from seed. Direct-sow in late fall or spring. Like most plants, this Asclepias is happiest in well-drained soils, but it will put up with a lot of hardship, including poor, dry soil and long periods of drought. It needs full sun and plenty of it to reach its peak performance. Hardy just about anywhere in the U.S. Zones 3-9. Packet is 20 seeds.

Hello Yellow Butterfly Flower

Incredibly short germination time - great germination rate! I just bought these. Using the wet coffee filter method, most of the seeds germinated 48 hours after sprinkling them on the wet coffee filter. They are ready to transfer to expanded peat pellets now. Wet coffee filter method: Buy a package of white coffee filters (the basket-shaped kind that go in the drip coffee maker). Put on powder-free disposable gloves. Spread a filter on a clean plate and wet it with cold water, Sprinkle seeds on bottom half, fold up filter like an envelope (fold the top down and sides in), and put in a sandwich zip lock bag. Label with permanent marker and put it on top of refrigerator in a clear shoebox (no lid) and check for germination rate twice a day. Most of our seeds sprouted within 48 hours, and we expect the rest to sprout today or tomorrow.
