Product Description

No butterfly garden is complete without a butterfly weed. Unlike American Lady (Painted Lady) larvae, which have a broad diet, monarch larvae are extremely picky about food. They only feed on a select number of native plants, which include butterfly weed, common milkweed, and swamp milkweed. Butterfly watching is profoundly beneficial, both physically and emotionally. While we can’t guarantee monarchs will come and lay eggs on your butterfly weeds. We are confident that when they bloom; they will attract at least one kind of butterflies to your garden, for the sweet nectar.
