This set of three Orange Butterfly Milkweed plants is the perfect companion to one of our Monarch Munchables collections. Create a larger haven for monarchs, queen butterflies, and other critical wildlife species when you add these plants to your existing wildlife garden.

 

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 Orange Butterfly Milkweed keystone plants also supports:

- Queen butterflies (Danaus gilippus)
- 96% of backyard birds that rely on these insects to feed their young
- Dozens of other pollinator species foraging for nectar

All purchases support National Wildlife Federation’s non-profit mission to help declining wildlife and expand native plant availability nationwide.

I've got milkweed, but have not seen any butterflies.

The plants arrived well and happy. I bought lots because I wanted to establish a full garden with plants native to central Virginia! But only the milkweed has survived. Maybe it'll take another season for the Goldenrod and Aster to fully grow? I'm disappointed. Sadly, it was not worth the purchase price for me. I probably won't purchase again.
