Monarch Butterfly Banquet Packages
$37.50 – $68.50
These plant packages are created to support all stages of the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly (Danaus Plexippus). They contain a variety of Milkweed (Asclepias) species for the caterpillar and composites such as Blazing Stars (Liatris), Asters (Symphyotrichum), Goldenrod (Oligoneuron and Solidago) as well as other earlier summer composites for the adult butterfly. We choose the plants at time of shipment and that means you save!
