Hi Amber
I have 2 colors and they had a lot of seeds right now. One is yellow, another red/ yellow center.

hi, i would be very grateful for some seeds... its sad that when i was a kid there were monarchs everywhere and everywhere you looked you could find some milkweed... now you have to really look HARD to find any... so sad!

my monarchs eat my milkweed down..no seed pods this year. But I do have seedlings pop up all over the yard. i have quite a few butterfly varieties visit my gardens. The one that I really love is the zebra long wing which is the state butterfly of Florida. The first few years i lived here I saw 1. Now I see them everyday! Having larval and nectar plants has done the trick.
