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.
Create a private retreat for butterflies! The two milkweed varieties included in this collection (Asclepias tuberosa and Asclepias speciosa) provide food and habitat for the Monarch caterpillars. Our Bring Home the Butterflies flower mix brings a lovely range of bright colors and heights, while California Giants Zinnias promise long-lasting blooms. Enjoy more butterflies in your home garden with this collection!
