Heartleaf Milkweed Plants for Butterfly Gardens
Heart-leaf milkweed plants will add a deep purple hue to your butterfly garden. They are a West Coast native found in California and Oregon.
Monarch butterflies use them on which to lay their eggs so their caterpillars can feed on the leaves. Like other milkweeds, this is also a nectar plant that attracts many other species of butterflies to its flowers besides the Monarch.
First year seedlings of this plant resemble a vine. As they age they will grow more upright.
All of our plants are grown to be safe for butterflies, caterpillars and any other pollinators.
