Grow a garden filled with Milkweed, from freshly harvested Asclepias flower seeds. Milkweed will produce beautiful clusters of small, colorful flowers. The plants themselves grow to a varying height of about 18 to 48 inches tall, depending on the variety shown. Milkweed is known for attracting an array of beneficial insects such as bumblebees, lady bugs, hummingbirds and most importantly the endangered Monarch butterfly. Asclepias is grown as a perennial flowering plant that returns each year from it’s deeply established root system.

Asclepias is very important to the Monarch butterfly as it is categorized as a host plant. The caterpillars will enjoy it’s large, tender leaves and adult Monarchs, as well as many other butterflies look to it for it’s rich source of nectar. Milkweed can be grown with any number of additional wildflowers such as Yarrow, Salvia, Rudbeckia and more.

Monarch butterflies occupied much of North America in the many years prior to 2015. Recently, studies have shown that their numbers have dwindled by nearly 96% over the decades, leaving them hanging on the edge of endangerment. This migratory species is exposed to numerous threats along it’s pilgrimage, but the number one threat it faces is the decrease in Milkweed plants available.

Purchase Asclepias seeds now to help prevent any further decline in the Monarch population. Together we can all help to increase the number of these lovely orange & black creatures that so many of us adore.
