Grow Common Milkweed for a Butterfly Garden

Butterfly gardens are a great way to add a splash of color and beauty to your yard or garden. One of the best plants to include in your butterfly garden is common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca). This hardy perennial can be grown from starter plants, and is a great way to attract more butterflies to your garden.

Common milkweed is a native wildflower that is found in many areas of the United States. It is a hardy plant that is easy to grow and maintain. It typically grows to a height of 2-4 feet and produces clusters of pinkish-purple flowers in the summer. The flowers are highly attractive to butterflies, and the plant also provides food for caterpillars.

Common milkweed can be grown from starter plants, which are available from many nurseries. HH Plant Nursery offers common milkweed starter plants for just $19.99.  These starter plants are easy to plant and will quickly establish themselves in your garden. Once established, common milkweed is a drought-tolerant plant that requires little maintenance.

Common milkweed is a great addition to any butterfly garden. Not only does it provide food for butterflies, but it also adds a beautiful splash of color to your garden. With its hardy nature and easy maintenance, common milkweed is a great choice for any butterfly garden.
