Top Milkweed Selections for Supporting Monarch Butterflies

The flutter of butterfly wings can transform your garden into a sanctuary for vibrant life. Differing milkweed varieties serve as the nurturing backbone of your butterfly haven. Milkweed is very important for the endangered species of Monarch Butterflies. It is the only food that Monarch babies can eat and is also the only plant in which the butterfly will lay its eggs on. It just so happens to be the adults’ favorite food as well! Milkweed is not only beneficial to these nectar navigators. The plant comes in a plethora of vibrant colors that bring your garden to life! Imagine looking out your window to see elegant orange butterflies circling around your bright red and yellow plants. Planting milkweed adds to the survival chance of Monarch Butterflies and other pollinators. Down at the farm, Mr. Burger suggests planting our swamp milkweed varieties such as Asclepias incarnata, Asclepias incarnata “Soulmate”, Asclepias incarnata “Ice Ballet”, and Asclepias incarnata “Cinderella”, as well as our butterfly weed Asclepias tuberosa. Stop by and check out these awesome perennials we look forward to answering any questions you may have!
