Monarch Butterfly Habitat Mix



Monarch populations have shrunken considerably over the past 20 years.  This beautiful butterfly needs more pollinator habitat to increase its survival on its migration of over 2,500 miles from Canada to Mexico.  Pinelands Nursery’s Monarch Butterfly Mix is made up of all of the forbs that monarchs love.  Did you know that Asclepias syriaca (common milkweed), is one of the only plants on which the monarch lays its eggs and their larvae will feed and develop all the way into a chrysalis?
