An essential butterfly garden plant, Butterfly Milkweed plants produce large numbers of bright orange blooms that attract a variety of butterflies. Unfussy and drought tolerant, Butterfly Milkweed will reach up to 24" high and does best in well-draining soil. Butterfly Milkweed is an important food source for Monarch caterpillars. For best success with this perennial seed, we recommend Fall Planting. For Spring Planting, seeds should be cold stratified prior to sowing.
