Butterfly Weed



Look at the little pod-like buds of the individual flowers. And then when they open they create these perfect little five pointed yellow stars ready to entice a butterfly. SO, I get the butterfly part of the name, but WEED?????

  2. I love how when the bud opens it creates a little fairy skirt down below the yellow flower part. (Should I get a little more technical in my plant terminology?)
