This host plant for monarch butterfly caterpillars is abundant with creamy white flowers tinged with soft pink, that sit in clusters on stalks with short narrow leaves. Ideal for rain gardens and partly-shaded moist environments.

Grown non-GMO and free of harmful neonicotinoids, these native Snowy Milkweed plants for sun/part-shade:

  • Support other wildlife species including birds, butterflies, moths, and bees
  • Bloom longer in some southern states and return each year
  • Never need chemicals and require less water once established
  • Are deer resistant, once established

Seed pods will develop on stems in fall and remain into winter, but do not have tufted wisps found in other milkweed pods.

Available in sets of three or six plants.

Did you know? The monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) that relies on native milkweed to survive has declined in population by 90%. By planting milkweed, you are restoring critical habitat for monarchs and making a real difference toward saving these iconic creatures!

This set of Snowy Milkweed plants also supports up to:
-3 other butterfly species
- 96% of backyard birds that rely on these insects to feed their young
- Dozens of other pollinator species foraging for nectar

Snowy Milkweed

The jury is still out on this one. This is a native milkweed and I don’t think it should be blooming now. It is still green though spindly and only a few leaves. They pretty much still look like they did when they arrived. I think this just might be the nature of this plant. I’ll have to wait and see how it goes.

So far doing very well

Everything came beautifully packed and healthy. I planted them right away at the end of September. Right now at the end of October one of the plants has flowers. That was an unexpected surprise. The milkweed have grown quite a bit in under two months. All in all I am very pleased. I’ll be watching them this winter in case they need protection. Yay!

Mostly terrific, with three exceptions

3 Blue Mistflowers arrived dead. Big disappointment! Hopefully they can be replaced? They were part of a 12-pack SE Pollinator Power collection.

Beyond my expectations

After a slight bobble at delivery ( I could not find the box.) I contacted the company and they located the box for me. However several of the plants looked poorly. The company resent the order. Way beyond my expectations. I plan to order additional plants.
