Like last year, we are discounting all of our milkweed varieties as an incentive to help the desperate monarch butterfly population. It looks like efforts across North America are working but we need to continue to provide this essential plant to support monarch populations and their migrations. Monarch butterflies simply cannot survive without milkweed.  Adult butterflies and other pollinators also rely on flower nectar for food.  Try to ensure that you have plants in flower from early spring through late fall.  Asters and goldenrods are great season extenders.

All of our plants are free of neonicotinoid pesticides.

A Note about Woodland Species

We’ve moved! Woodland forbs are now categorized under the main forbs category. Check the “filter by” box by shade or part shade to help find plants suitable for your growing conditions. (Here are the plants previously listed under Woodland Species, in case you’re looking.) Many sedges and ferns also make good woodland plants.
