Asclepias Tuberosa

This is one of my favorite wildflowers in this part of the country.   

The bees and butterflies love it.      In fact, its common name is Butterfly Weed.

I love that you can see buds and blooms at several stages on a plant at the same time. 

It comes in all shades of orange:   from orange juice...

... to dark tangerine.  

Some are striped, some aren't. 

All photos K1.   She's a marvel with the camera.

What's your favorite July wildflower?
