Mixed Colors Asclepias Monarch Blend Bulbs (9-Pack)

$ 24 99 /package

Overview

BRING HOME THE BUTTERFLIES. Asclepias is also known by its common name Milk Weed, among several others. It is a herbaceous perennial. Tropical, multitasking milk weed attracts monarch butterflies that use the plant as a source for nectar. Monarch butterflies lay eggs on this plant and in turn, the resulting larvae (Caterpillars) use the plant leaves as a food source. Plant en masse to create curb appeal and to help support threatened wild life. It is very easy to care for, deer and rabbit resistant and will still flower while it produces seed-blooms all season. Starting with our sizable roots instead of seed, they assure a full season of bloom. It can also be grown as a container plant. Our exclusive Asclepias Sweet Monarch Blend consists of three varieties, Cinderella, Tuberosa Orange and Ice Ballet. It's bright colors are irresistible to pollinators like butterflies. Plant them just about anywhere. They are drought tolerant and very easy to care for.
