Milkweed plants are an all-around good idea for the garden. These plants are the sole host for monarch larvae to feed on, which means these flowers are guaranteed to bring beautiful butterflies to your garden. The butterfly's milkweed plant diet also makes the insects toxic to predators, which they show off via their brilliant, orange-and-black wings. These three free-flowering milkweed plant varieties are useful in landscaping, too. The two tuberosas have no problem with extremely dry soil. Patches of Asclepias tuberosa have been seen growing out of otherwise barren, rocky soil on the side of highways. The incarnata variety, or Swamp Milkweed plant, tolerates wet soils, hence its name. And as all three are native cultivars, they are easy to grow and drought tolerant. They're ideal to grow alongside perennial grasses, because they will not be overwhelmed by the grass. If you want to show off your gardening skills around the house, the milkweed plant's flowers and the seed pods are long-lasting in fresh and dried arrangements.
