There is an alarming decline in the numbers of Monarch Butterflies and they need your help! We are encouraging all of our customers and friends to do their part by planting milkweed. We are offering everyone a chance to help by encouraging the sale and planting of these vital plants.

Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias Tuberosa) is a plant native to the US that creates a wonder area of your garden for monarch butterflies. The Growers Exchange wants to encourage our gardening friends to save monarch butterfly populations. All you have to do is find a sunny place in your garden to help monarchs thrive and slow the decline of their population. Read more about this on our blog!

Please Note: These plants are perennial herbs and are entering dormancy. A PERFECT time to plant is the fall, but just remember that the plants you receive are ready for their winter nap so they can settle in and emerge as big beautiful plants in the spring!

5 of 5 Butterfly Milkweed October 3, 2016
Reviewer: Margot from South Dartmouth, MA United States  
I ordered 6 Asclepias Tuberosa (bright orange flowering milkweed) plants plus the 2 free ones. After 3 weeks, all but one came up, and the 7 are thriving. The packaging was great, no soil disturbance at all, which is hard to fathom since UPS is not always so careful. In our old house in Conn. I  had great success attracting many different butterflies with these plants, and I can't wait for the new ones to bloom like little fires all over the "wildflower" garden. They are very hardy and the seed pods are plentiful enough to give away as gifts; they start easily from seeds.
