Milkweeds are nectar-rich wildflowers that attract Monarch butterflies, the leaves of the milkweed are an essential food source for caterpillars.
Once you have identified the perfect location for your chosen milkweed, next you want to make sure the area retains adequate moisture and is grown well out of the reach of young children. Pet’s should also be kept away from Milkweed as the white milky sap is toxic and must be avoided.
When you start a pollinator garden it is important to consider both the location and growing conditions, some milkweed will thrive in full sun others prefer shelter from the woodland edge.
The following milkweed is some of my personal favorites and beneficial for wildlife as well as plants worthy of space in your garden beds, prairie meadows, and native container.
