Make your garden a haven for monarch butterflies with these Common Milkweed/Butterfly Flower Seeds!
This heirloom species provides food and habitat for monarch butterflies and is an essential host plant for their caterpillars. In summer, pink to purplish or white flowers are followed by decorative seedpods that are beautiful in dried arrangements.
Robust, shrub-like perennial spreads by underground rhizomes. Native throughout much of the eastern and central United States.
Sow milkweed seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost or outdoors after last frost. To sow milkweed seeds indoors, place seeds on the surface of moistened seed-starting mix.
Do not cover the seeds as they need light to germinate. Keep the soil moist but not wet and place in a warm location until germination, which usually takes 7-14 days.
Once seedlings have emerged, transplant into individual pots and grow under full sun conditions. Harden off and transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed and nighttime temperatures remain above 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
