The Iconic Plant for Butterfly Gardens

Why Milkweed Plants?

No wildlife-friendly garden is complete without the addition of the Milkweed Plant. From its colorful growth and rich green foliage to its easy upkeep, the Milkweed is an essential component of a showy landscape.

And it tolerates a number of conditions. Swampy, soggy areas are no match for the Milkweed, which thrives in bog-like ground and continues blooming, with eye-catching flowers clustered on tall stems that last through the summer. Plus, its visually interesting seed pods often persist into the winter season, too.

    It arrived and looked very healthy. It's been only 2 days in the ground but still looking good.

    3-4’ Milkweed

    I ordered the largest milkweed and it arrived about 5 weeks ago. It was stressed, limp and several branches were broken. I planted it in the soil provided, which I ordered separately, and the root stimulant. After caring for it my milkweed is beginning to look like it will make it. I am in Southern California and the local monarch butterfly attracting plant has orange flowers. This Milkweed has white flowers. I haven’t seen any monarch butterflies around my milkweed but they are starting to migrate south now so hopefully next year! I have my 🤞
