    Is it possible to grow a butterfly flower (asclepia tuberosa) in a container or must I plant it in the ground? I haven't got a permanent place for it at the moment and have been told it dislikes transplanting so am wondering if I can just plant it in a pot?

    Sold blooming in pots at garden centers. Since you titled your post butterfly bush I thought this was going to be about a Buddleja.

    Sorry - this garden dummy didn't realize there was a difference and I don't know how to edit the title. Thanks for the info though!
