The butterfly weed is a favorite of Candice Hart as a great cut flower, but also as a milkweed that supports the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly. Commonly known as butterfly weed, this long-lived and striking perennial is native to much of the continental United States, along with Canadian provinces Ontario and Quebec.
