This bushy, 1 1/2-2 ft. plant is prized for its large, flat-topped clusters of bright-orange flowers that attract butterflies. 

Monarch butterflies lay their eggs on these plants so by growing some you end up increasing the butterfly population. Butterflies also favor the nectar found in the flowers.

(CAUTION: The milky sap is poisonous if ingested in large quantities, and contact with the skin may cause dermatitis in sensitive individuals.)
