The Pennsylvania Wilds area is in the center of the migration corridor for the northeast summer breeding habitat. Monarch butterflies return to the Northeast and Canada each spring and need the milkweed plants for laying eggs and feeding the caterpillar stage. The nectar from the milkweed blossom is used to nourish the butterfly. Use these seeds to try to grow your own garden of butterflies!
Seed packet, 200+ seed count, common milkweed (asclepias syriaca)
Milkweed Monarchy was created to encourage planting of milkweed to restore the monarch butterfly habitat, restore migration corridors, and fund milkweed education and research.
Milkweed Monarchy is located in the I-80 Frontier; learn more about this inspiring landscape now.
