One of the easiest butterfly-friendly flowers you can grow!
Brighten your landscape, borders, and bouquets with large clusters of orange, red, pink, and lemon-yellow blooms engulfed in oblong, mid-green leaves. Butterflies all summer long! Enjoy the bright orange and lemon hues of this vibrant mixture while flocks of butterflies treat you to their own show of color and activity. Fragrant, quick-growing plants form clumps of foliage that make the perfect backdrop to the showy flowers. Milkweed plants are drought tolerant and provide a steady food source for beautiful Monarch butterflies

Milkweed is essential to the Monarchs as they complete their life cycle on the plant. They begin by laying eggs on the leaves and once they hatch, use the leaves of the plant as their food source. Once large enough, the process of metamorphosis begins and the caterpillar emerges as the Monarch butterfly. The butterfly feeds off the Milkweed flowers until it lays eggs for the next generation. Milkweed is essential to their short life cycle and by planting it in your landscape, you are creating a habitat for the butterflies for years to come.
