Milkweed Bush

Milkweed Bush

 

Monarch butterflies are attracted to gardens with a milkweed bush. The milkweed bush is a host plant for Monarch butterflies to lay their eggs. The beautiful orange blooms will add bright orange color to your garden! For beginner gardeners, milkweed multiplies rapidly! To keep it in a confined area, pick off the seedpods that sprout in late Summer/early Fall.
