You will receive a seed packet containing 1 gram or a minimum of 100 ORGANIC seeds. Asclepias syriaca commonly known as Milkweed, Butterfly-flower, and Silkweed is a part of the Asclepiadaceae family. This North American plant was used by indigenous people for removing warts and the treatment of respiratory diseases. Milkweed is known to contain cardiac glycoside, a substance that is harmful to birds and mammals. Many insects can digest the cardiac glycosides causing them to become inedible to predators; the most famous example is the Monarch butterfly! Milkweed is essential to the lifecycle of the Monarch butterfly and is the only plant on which it lays its eggs. Large clusters of sweet-smelling blooms provide food and safety for your local pollinators and this easy-to-care-for wildflower will re-seed itself year after year. Whether you are looking to start a butterfly garden or want to add more native plants to your outdoor space Milkweed should be at the top of your list!
