OTHER: In addition to being beautiful, Milkweed is a very important plant because it is a host for the beloved MONARCH butterfly. Monarch larva feed exclusively on Milkweeds. That means if there is no Milkweed, there would be no Monarchs :( It is also an important nectar plant for bees & other insects. The common name Milkweed was given to this plant because of its milky juice. The scientific name comes from Asclepius, the Greek god of healing, because of the many folk-medicinal uses for the milkweed plants. The dried seed pods are also very interesting for dried arrangements

Sweet bumblebees! These seeds shipped fast! I was so excited to see descriptive labels- I'm new-ish to seed-planting, so this is really helpful! I will never buy seeds from a big store again. Time will tell how I do with them, but starting off with this quality really does leave me feeling very optimistic! And the seller was generous with some greatly appreciated extras! Buy some seeds from SeedvilleUSA and get crackin' on your dream garden fast!
