Native Milkweed Plant Kit
MNL ships the plant kits every Tuesday for the remainder of the growing season. They will send you an email containing shipping information when they have shipped it.
Make your yard into beautiful monarch habitat! Grow milkweed, the plant monarchs require to complete their life cycle.
This flat of 36 native milkweed plants is for orders within Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Illinois, eastern Nebraska, and a selection of zip codes in Michigan (49801, 49802, 49858, 49870, 49876, 49938). You can check to see if you live in an area where these plants can be shipped here: Plant Shipping Zones (Zip Code List)
Each kit covers a 40-60 square foot area. Best to plant in a sunny area.
