Botanical Interests is supporting the National Wildlife Federation’s Butterfly Hero Campaign in raising awareness of the monarch butterfly’s habitat loss. We believe that as home gardeners, we can help to replenish the monarch habitat by sowing milkweed and other butterfly-friendly varieties in our home, school, and community gardens.
Our Eastern Breeze Butterfly Collection includes two native milkweed varieties (Asclepias tuberosa and Asclepias incarnata) that serve as host plants for monarch caterpillars. Bring Home the Butterflies Flower Mix and Cut & Come Again Zinnia adds bright hues to your garden, attracting butterflies and providing nectar. Sit back and wait for the butterflies to arrive!
