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.
Specifically chosen for the Midwest, the Midwest Flutter Butterfly Collection includes two native milkweed varieties (Asclepias tuberosa and Asclepias syriaca) that provide food and habitat for the monarch caterpillar. Prairie Splendor Flower Mix brings the beauty of the Midwest to your garden, while the Cut & Come Again Zinnia shares lasting blooms through the season. Enjoy a gorgeous butterfly garden in no time!
