The Dirty Gardener Asclepias Syriaca Common Milkweed
The Dirty Gardener wants to help the eco system and have searched out the best supply of butterfly milkweed seed to grow these beautiful flowers and help the monarch flourish. The connection between milkweed and monarch has become widely known recently. Many people are now aware that although adult monarch butterflies can nectar on any number of flowers, their offspring, emerging as caterpillars, must eat the leaves of milkweed and only milkweed to reach the next stage of growth and undergo the miraculous metamorphosis that allows an adult monarch butterfly to come into existence. Asclepias syriaca, commonly called common milkweed, butterfly flower, silkweed, silky swallow-wort, and Virginia silkweed, is a species of flowering plant. The Dirty Gardener offers the highest quality seed. We pack seeds weekly to ensure great germination from the newest yearÕs crop seed. We strive to sell all Non-GMO seeds of the highest quality.
