The flowers also make nice cuttings for indoor bouquets.This plant will grow to 18 to 36 inches tall, and thrives in partial shade to full sun. The scientific name for this plant is Asclepias tuberosa, and it is hardy to USDA Zones 4 to 9.
Prepare the planting area by adding 3 inches of coarse sand and mixing it in well with the existing soil. Water the area well and allow it to drain.
Dig a hole in the soil twice the diameter of the pot in which the orange glory plant currently sits, but no deeper.
Remove the orange glory plant from its pot and place it in the hole. Backfill with the soil and firm it down around the base of the plant.
Space the plants 2 feet apart if you are planting more than one.
