By popular demand, OPN Seed brings you "Milkweed Madness"! This regionally adapted seed packet contains four different species that all attract 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 habitat for the butterflies for years to come.

Contains the following species:

Asclepias syriaca- Common Milkweed

Asclepias tuberosa- Butterfly Milkweed

Asclepias incarnata-Swamp Milkweed

Asclepias speciosa- Showy Milkweed
