Here I am offering seeds from Asclepias hirtella, also known as Prairie Milkweed, and Tall Green Milkweed. This plant loves to live in full sun where it attracts a wide variety of birds, bees, and butterflies. This plant grows to about 2 feet high and is a larval host plant for the Monarch butterfly. Asclepias in general are documented nectar sources for the Monarch, Orange-edged Roadside-Skipper, Dina Yellow, Carus Skipper, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, and Falcate Metalmark butterflies. It is also the nectar source for the Clarks sphinx, and Milkweed Tussock moths. USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 7
