Sedum Garden

Driving along the country roads in the rising heat of early summer you spot flashes of brilliant orange dotting the fields and roadsides. If you are East of the Mississippi or in the Southwest chances are good that you are witnessing the beauty and the miracle of the Butterfly Milkweed Asclepias tuberosa. This tough perennial grows from a deep tap root to survive the annual feasting of its leaves and stems by the beautiful and endangered larvae of the Monarch Butterfly Danaus plexippus. Milkweeds are the host plant for the Monarch larvae and without them we will have no more Monarch Butterflies. Join the efforts of preserving and restoring the Monarch Butterfly population by planting Butterfly Milkweed for the larvae and other native wildflowers like Liatris and Aster for nectar sources.

We will be adding seed packets of three native Milkweed species to our catalog shortly and a 10% donation will be made to Monarch Watch with each purchase to double your efforts and participation in saving the beautiful, wonderful and endangered Monarch Butterfly.
