Description

Milkweed – if you plant it, the Monarchs will come! As the sole food source (aka the ‘host plant’) for growing Monarchs, planting Milkweed is a great way to help bolster the declining population of this favorite orange butterfly. Our collection of carefully chosen milkweed varieties is the perfect start to creating your own butterfly garden or Monarch Butterfly Pit Stop. Best of all, these three native plants complement one another beautifully in the garden.

Our Milkweed Collection is covers roughly 21-39 sq ft and includes 9 plants:

Shipped as Potted Plants:
3 x Butterfly Weed
