10 seeds per packet 400 seeds per dpak due to exceptional quality, but extreme shortages, these unique packets have been created in the hopes of reaching as many helping hands as possible. Monarchs are counting on each of us to do our part in protecting their mystery and beauty. Only by working together can we insure that milkweeds and butterflies will always have a place in this world.The only thing more beautiful than the intricate, satiny flowers of this plant are the soft, fluffy seeds that emerge from its pods in the fall. The milkweeds are all important to the life cycle of butterflies. Monarchs particularly like the Green Milkweed and are famous for their southward migration and northward return in the Americas which spans the life of three to four generations of the butterfly. Native American Seed supports creating habitat for monarchs and is open to buying or trading for unique native seeds. If you have extra milkweed seeds we would be happy to work with you to put these on the market so that others may also have the opportunity to create monarch habitat in their backyard.
