Categories: ,


Thin leaves arranged in whorls along the stem, white flowers appear in small clusters July to Sept. Prefers full sun and average, well-drained soil, but tolerates partial shade. Milkweed is a favorite of bees and butterflies and the plant is a host to the monarch butterfly larvae. Native to most of the US east of the Rockies.  Height: 2′.
Seedlings come in 3 1/8″ bio-degradable pots.

A word about native plants: perennial plants, often with deep roots. Transplant them carefully as they dislike root disturbance. They are slow growing, and will not flower until the second year (or later).
