Product Description

Milk Weed is a Beneficial Conversation Perennial 

Milkweed is standard across the United States. Their flowers are distinctive in shape and colors. Dark green leaves on tall stiff stems highlight the orange, pink, white or yellow flowers of the Asclepias family. Their tall stems mix well with other tall garden flowers. Their solid colors and decorative flowers make great ornamental cut flowers. The sap of the milkweed is white and sticky. Milkweed is perennial. It is a beneficial conservation plant. Milkweed attracts native bees and honeybees as well as several species of butterflies and hummingbirds. Colorful Monarch butterfly larvae feed on the leaves, and each develops into a beautiful chrysalis. Watch them hatch into delicate monarch butterflies.

Milk Weed plants can spread to the ground by rhizomes which can quickly crowd out other plants. When one breaks the stem, it will let out a milky-like sap. Milkweed would make a lovely addition to any landscape. The seeds will spread by the wind catching them and carrying them off.

 

This plant will attract butterflies to your area, and usually, the monarch will lay their eggs on this plant. Once the caterpillars come out, they will feed on the leaves—no need to fertilize as these will grow in the poorest of the soil. If you don’t care for the seed to spread, you will want to remove the pods before they open or have seeds growing everywhere. Milkweed has a juicy flavor that can be used for food, or wildlife animals use it.
