Milkweed seeds

  • 1.  Milkweed seeds

    Posted 5 days ago
    I have 30 small bags of Asclepias syriaca seeds to share. These are seeds for the Common Milkweed, which is native to the Northeast, the MidAtlantic down to North Carolina, the Midwest as far as Iowa, and the border areas of Canada.  
    It DOES NOT like excessively wet areas.  It is a hostplant for the Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus)

    So, if you are interested, please message me with the Address of your school and the Contact person.  I can ONLY send them to places where it is native.

    Absolutely one of my favorite wildflowers in SW Oklahoma. We are in the direct path of the monarch butterfly migration. Our trees will be covered with them when they migrate. It's simply amazing to see! As they come to rest in the trees the other butterflies start fluttering so they don't land on them.

    Michelle - I would love some seeds.  We were able to get some butterflies for the K to watch grow and turn into butterflies (almost ready) ... but it we had more plants they love that would help.

    Hi! We would LOVE the milkweed seeds for our rain garden. We had some uninformed volunteers tear a bunch of ours out a year ago and only some survived. Thank you.

    Hi Michelle!  We would love to have the seeds here in Northwestern NJ!
    We have seen a decline in our butterfly and larva population this year due to how the summer drought affected our milkweed plants.
    These seeds will be added to our pollinator garden space where we witness the life cycle of the Monarch each year.
    Thanks!

    If you have seeds available, we are trying to rejuvinate our milkweed areas that we lost due to some construction issues.
