Add some flair and pollinator food to your garden with this bright orange wildflower! Milkweed is an essential plant for the Monarch butterfly’s survival. It is the only plant the caterpillar is able to live off of and create their intricate chrysalis upon. In the spring and early summer, look for caterpillars on your plant who’ve hitched a ride to their new home. Plant on dry sandy soil and try not to move this plant once established. Deer resistant.
