Introducing our pesticide-free milkweed plant, the perfect addition to your backyard sanctuary! Attract monarch butterflies and support their lifecycle with our premium milkweed plant, carefully cultivated to thrive in your garden.

Pesticide-Free: Rest assured that our milkweed plant is grown without the use of any pesticide products. Most milkweed you find at the garden store has been treated with pesticides, even if they say it hasn't been! "Organic" and "Natural" pesticides like permethrin, neem, or boric acid will still be deadly to Monarch larvae. We use beneficial insects to control aphids and other pests to make sure your plant is healthy and ready to go!

Important notes- please read! These plants are usually available from April to October. Please contact us outside of this window to confirm availability. This plant may not be big enough at the time of shipping to support multiple monarch caterpillars, especially early in the season. If you want a monarch ready plant, please order our Monarch Kit. 

Native Species Available: Our swamp milkweed plant is a native species, providing a natural habitat for monarch butterflies and other pollinators indigenous to your region. Swamp milkweed doesn't spread aggressively through the roots, so it's unlikely to take over your garden like other milkweed specie might. By planting native species, you're fostering biodiversity and supporting the local ecosystem. We also have tropical milkweed available, as an easy growing annual.

Beautiful Blooms: Delight in the vibrant blooms of our milkweed plant, which not only add beauty to your garden but also provide essential nectar for butterflies and other beneficial insects. Tropical Milkweed has a longer blooming window, and can bloom the whole year until the fall frost. 

Already Established: Whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting out, our milkweed plant is easy to grow and maintain. Simply plant it in a sunny spot with well-draining soil, water regularly, and watch it thrive!

Support Monarch Conservation: By planting milkweed in your backyard, you're playing a vital role in monarch conservation efforts. Monarch butterflies rely on milkweed as the only host plant for their larvae, making it essential for their survival. Join us in protecting these iconic butterflies and preserving their natural habitat.

Transform your backyard into a haven for monarch butterflies with our native, pesticide-free milkweed plant. Order yours today and make a difference for Monarch Butterflies and the environment!
