Generous quantities of Butterflyweed and Common Milkweed are included in this seed mix to support Monarch Caterpillars. In addition to the milkweed plants, we’ve included a wide variety of the Monarchs favorite nectar plants to support the adult butterflies throughout the season. This mix provides essential habitat to a wide variety of other butterflies and valuable pollinators, as well.
