Adopt a Milkweed! We are offering a milkweed plant to anyone who would like one during our annual Celebration of Spring and Plant Sale. (while supplies last)
We know that Monarch caterpillars only eat milkweed.
The milkweed plant provides all the nourishment the monarch needs to transform the Monarch caterpillar into the adult butterfly.
After you get your milkweed plant, watch your milkweed grow. After a month or two, the Monarch caterpillars will start eating them. Milkweed does spread, so be sure to plant it in area big enough for the spread you want.
(Note: Milkweed plants are food for caterpillars but poisonous to humans. Avoid getting milkweed sap on your skin or in your eyes. Milkweed is also toxic if eaten, so keep plants away from young children and pets.)
