Monarch Waystation Garden Seed Mix 1/2 oz.
In early 2021, the Monarch butterfly officially became labeled an endangered species. Those of us on the conservation circuit had already been paying attention to the Monarch’s plight for a while. Monarchs need Milkweed to complete their lifecycle: Milkweed serves as the hostplant for Monarch caterpillars. The adult butterflies also need some nectar flowers to eat. This seed mix has both types of native plants, Milkweed hostplant and other native nectar flowers. This will create a Monarch butterfly breeding space AND a migration waystation. If your goal was to register your property with Monarch Watch (http://monarchwatch.com), now you can! This seed mix has all the requirements met.
