Not as common as it once was due to changes in agricultural practices and increases in manicured turf. This Milkweed is adaptable to a wide variety of soil moistures and does great in "Wild" gardens. Spreads by underground stolons so you may want to plant it in a bottomless bucket if you plant it in a garden.
One of our Most Popular Mixes!
Year after year, this mix continues to be a bestseller. A combination of all Ohio native short grasses and wildflowers, it's ready to show how true of a winner it is. Annuals break out the first year while the perennials establish underneath and get ready for the future. Birds, bees and butterflies love it, and so will you!
Butterfly Milkweed is a plant of dry, well drained soils. Does well in the home garden and adds diversity in prairie plantings. Attracts monarch butterflies who lay eggs on the leaves which are consumed by caterpillars.
As the name implies, this member of the Milkweed family is typically found in moist to wet areas in nature. It will do well in normal garden soil as well. A magnet for Monarch butterflies and other pollinators.

"You Plant, We Plant for 2015"
Ohio Prairie Nursery applauds your efforts to help the plight of the Monarch Butterfly and we are committed to doing the same. In 2015, we are introducing our "You Plant, We Plant" Campaign. Ohio Prairie Nursery will match the total weight of all milkweed sold in 2015 and plant habitat for the Monarch Butterfly. For example, for every ounce of milkweed you purchase from Ohio Prairie Nursery, we'll plant an ounce of milkweed for habitat. Let's join together to show our Monarch friends we care and we want them here for many generations.
Thank you for visiting Ohio Prairie Nursery's website. We're glad you're here.
Whether this is new to you or you are already using native seed, you are making a positive difference and an important contribution to the future. By using native grasses and native seeds in your landscape, you are helping to increase diversity and provide valuable habitat for other species of living things. Native insects, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds evolved alongside the native plants that support them.
The landscapes we create take resources to maintain. By using native material you are reducing the need for watering, pesticides and fertilizers. The deep root systems of most native species increase the ability of the soil to absorb water and help stabilize a stormwater network that is over capacity. You are also reducing erosion which helps keep our rivers and lakes clean!
Native plants help create a sense of place. By using the species that naturally belong in your yard or neighborhood you are keeping a connection to the botanical history of area alive.
On behalf of the thousands of native insects, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds that don't have a voice...THANK YOU AND PRAIRIE ON!
