Wildflowers – Milkweed Seeds

The Milkweed family is known as Asclepias to botanists. These species have become very popular over the past few years because of their unique trait of being a food source for Monarch Butterflies. Wherever Milkweeds are growing in our fields, somehow the Monarchs find them, and there is hardly a time when the butterflies are not fluttering around them. There is a good bit of variability within this genus, so there will surely be something that will work for your location, whether it is sand or swamp, or something in between. We carry everything from Common Milkweed seeds to Purple Milkweed. The Purple Milkweed is probably the rarest form of Milkweed seed that we have for sale, and the bulk stock that we get from time to time is quickly sold out. Browse our selection of bulk milkweed seeds for sale to find the right seeds to plant in your garden!

You just found our 20+ year ongoing thank you for our visitors.

Our goal – Help Nature and others in need.

Low cost, high quality seed for all and for some in need *Free* seeds, just cover postage and promise to share with others. The efforts and generosity of our staff and others like you keeps this possible. Thank you for helping us plant and share the wealth of Nature one seed at a time.

Due to overwhelming demand, shipping dates for new orders may be 2 weeks. Thank you for your patience.

This is the real picture of what our staff must now process to reach your new requests for seed. There are 400+ envelopes per tote. We respect this line and are going in order of what comes in to our post office. Planting Milkweed seed in the late Fall is Nature’s way, some seed is always dormant and needs the Winter cold to germinate in the Spring. We have already rushed our small seed providers to send in the best they have and are trying to recruit more local assistance to return your envelopes with the correct high quality seed you expect. Our full color info posters went out with the first wave of interest, we ran out. We will upload materials here soon so you have access to even better growing instructions and more easily printable information sheets making your experience even better. Know we are working very hard to catch up. You still have time to get your butterfly gardens planted. We suggest planting in Fall and early Spring. Seeds stored cool and dry can last several years.

Hello you wonderful caring people that are taking action to support your local Monarch Butterflies! You are the engine that drives our 21 year ongoing campaign to provide Free Education and the seeds to plant the edible homes for Monarch butterflies across North America. Our small staff of very dedicated people are willing to put in long hours to fill the requests you send in with the best Milkweed seed for your gardens.

Please be patient as this tremendous activity was not expected. Yes, we still have seeds and more are on the way from our best suppliers – some of whom are simple families that actually harvested the seeds. Our normal 2 day processing may take an extra week. You still have plenty of time to get seeds to match Nature’s natural timing of milkweed pods opening over the next few months. Seeds can be planted even in cold weather as many milkweed seed types have some dormancy and need the winter cold cycles to be able to germinate.

Your many posts on social media are much appreciated. We ask that you direct all new people to this site first, so they can read our message and get the details they really need. Please do not post our PO Box address or give inaccurate information, causing people to waste postage, envelopes or make mistakes like no stamp or return address for the free seed program. This Free seed program relies on small purchases and contributions to be able to break even. Please understand that in order to continue it we must cover the costs somehow.

Who should be getting FREE seeds? Our program is intended for Kids, Educators and people that really are having struggles and need a smile that Nature provides. It is not a gift program for your friends that can afford to contribute to the campaign. Please take this to heart. While 15 seeds may be enough you might want to share with neighbors and save them the postage and us the extra effort. Please review the seed pack page to use as gifts.

A mountain of incoming mail without postage could end it for everyone so please help us to continue this important community service that covers North America. Yes, Canada we send seeds to you too – the stamp is $1.90 USD. We suggest joining up with a few families.

Asclepias is the main name for milkweed, the varieties we have at the moment are… Syriaca, Speciosa, Incarnata, Tuberosa, and limited Fascicularis for CA, we also have regional specific wildflower mixes that have 12-25 types of flowering plants mostly Perennial. We can add extra milkweed to the mixes if requested.

If you have a strong opinion of what seed you do or do not want please add a note.

Everyone, please take the time to research the best varieties of milkweed for your specific area, US Gov maps below are generally showing where these varieties are currently found. More detailed “Native” maps are on many other sites, review them for new research. If you have seeds to share please contact us. While there are about 80 milkweed varieties in North America many of these are not commercially available and we can not grow them in our region. Please know if you ask us to choose the best variety we will send the most productive we have for the Monarchs. We have drastically limited our use of Tropical milkweed due to the concerns of some researchers… It must be specifically requested and used responsibly as a backup food supply. Please support your local providers and nurseries. They have local knowledge and you can see what is flying around the plants to know what is really productive in your area.

While this site needs to be updated regularly it relied on the best information at the time created. We remain focused on the goal of ensuring the continued Annual Migration of the Monarch Butterfly Across North America. Please make informed choices and care for one another.
