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

Do you have white color? would you like to trade?

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!

RE: free milkweed seeds or plants

my monarchs eat my milkweed 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.
