The Monarch Butterfly is on the brink of extinction, partially due to the lack of Milkweed plants-the only food monarch caterpillars eat. Use this eco-friendly seed packet to spread the word and help create natural monarch habitats along their migration routes!
Our packet has a natural kraft-look and simple etched design of a butterfly enjoying a milkweed plant. Milkweed Mix Contents: 55% Asclepias Tuberosa (Butterfly), 35% Asclepias Speciosa (Showy), 10% Asclepias Syriaca (Common). These are NOT tropical.
Milkweed Mix Planting Directions: You can start indoors 6 to 8 weeks before last frost in your area or direct sow after frost danger is past. The seed in this packet has been pre-soaked and are ready to be planted right away. Keep soil damp until seedlings emerge and then water as necessary. Seedlings should emerge in 10 days to 3 weeks. Full sun is best.
