Description

Prairie Milkweed is also called Sullivant's Milkweed. Extremely fragrant flowers! This Milkweed appears similar to Common Milkweed but is less aggressive, and has an overall smooth appearance on the stem, leaves and seed pods. Visited by hummingbirds and a wide variety of bees and butterflies. Native to both Canada and the USA!

Milkweed is an essential perennial plant for the butterfly garden, and it is the ONLY plant that the monarch caterpillar can eat. The flowers also attracts many other butterflies! It is probably the most used plant 'food' (nectar) for pollinators. Watching the life cycle of monarchs can be an excellent learning experience for kids too!

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 36", 90cm

Location: Sun or part sun

Hardiness zones: 3-7

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Start indoors. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for 4 weeks. If they have not germinated after 4 weeks then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 4 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination can be 30-90 days after the warming period, though some will take longer.
