We get different types of Milkweed for variety, and according to availability:
Incarnata is the classic, native Milkweed – hardy, not invasive (spreads by seeds, not roots), has pretty pink flowers, and Monarchs love it.
Syriaca is also native, a little more aggressive in the garden than the Incarnata, which makes them easier to grow and more likely to take over. They are very nectar-rich, which means they will attract a lot of pollinators in addition to Monarch butterflies.
The available plants are listed below this year, so check them out and order as many as you’d like. You can buy at our cost price of $2.00, or with a small donation to Sustainable Wellesley at $5.00 – and thank you. Maybe get some at each price? The plant is a small “plug” a cut-down plant with strong roots that is not much to look at when it starts out, but will grow quickly. We will email you to let you know how to pick up your plugs.
We edit our own website so if any of this doesn’t work just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch asap and thanks.
