These plants will thrive in your area!

This pale green-white milkweed is a host plant for monarch caterpillars and ideal for dry, sunny and part shade areas. Thin leaves arranged in whorls adorned with tiny fragrant blooms late in the season, providing nectar for a variety of butterflies and bees through early fall.

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 Whorled Milkweed keystone plants also supports:

- 13 other butterfly species
- 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.
