I have found through observation that Tropical Milkweed is the favorite Monarch Butterfly host plant....the plant in which the female lays her eggs.
It is an annual in all but the warm Southern areas of the United States. Ideally, you should start the seeds inside 2 or 3 months ahead of the last frost date in your area. That way the plants will be a decent size for the butterfly garden.
I also have Swamp Milkweed seeds, the other favorite of the Monarchs in my garden. Swamp milkweed is a perennial, so starting them will require some patience and the seeds either need to be refrigerated for 1 month or planted in your garden in the fall.
Last year I ordered a packet of 75 Tropical Milkweed seeds from you and had 100% success! I raised 159 Monarch butterflies over the course of the summer. I gave many friends beautiful plants and they were enjoyed by all."
There will be NO seed orders filled and mailed out

Swamp Milkweed Seeds Asclepias incarta Refrigerate seeds one month or plant in the fall in your garden.
If you start tropical or swamp milkweed seeds, and put several of these plants in your garden, you should attract many Monarch Butterflies!!
