Milk Weed Plant Sales

Butterfly Farms | Encinitas,CA | Milk Weed Plant Sales

Can you remember the last time you saw a Monarch butterfly in your yard? Monarchs are highly dependent upon milkweed plants for their breeding and preferred source of nectar. Many things are contributing to the disappearance of milkweed plants, including pesticides and changed farming methods. Unfortunately with the dwindling availability of milkweed plants in the wild, the population of the butterflies that rely on them is dwindling as well. With Butterfly Farms of San Diego, CA, however, you can bring back the butterflies!

Our nursery is partnered with seed suppliers across the region to bring you the unmodified native plants, including milkweed, that our local butterflies require to breed and feed. Our market has the plants you need to create your own butterfly garden inexpensively, and you do not need much space at all. Even a small flowerbox on a terrace is sufficient for milkweed growing and will attract Monarchs, swallowtails, hairstreaks, painted ladies, even hummingbirds to your garden!

When you visit our plant nursery, speak with our butterfly specialist, who will help you choose just the right plants for your growing situation, including Tropical Milkweed, Swamp Milkweed, Butterfly Weed, and Common Milkweed. We sell milkweed seeds you can start indoors and transplant outside, or, if you are concerned about your green thumb, we have established milkweed plants that are ready to be transplanted into your garden.

With over 100 varieties of milkweed available in the United States, we recommend getting in touch with our nursery staff to learn about the best varieties for enticing Monarchs to lay their eggs. We can also educate you on varieties in which they prefer to find their nectar. We will help you find the perfect combination for your needs, especially if you are visiting from out of state and want to take some home. Our experts will help you select those milkweed varieties that are native to your area to avoid non-native invasion.

Come by today to see our vivarium and purchase your own butterfly milkweed plants in San Diego, CA. We look forward to sharing our love of butterflies with you and your family!
