6 Plants to Bring More Monarchs


Attracting Monarchs and other butterflies to your garden plot is more successful when you plant hosts plants for caterpillars and nectar plants for adult butterflies. In the Monarch Kit, you'll get two host plants (from the Asclepias family) and four nectar plants (Echinacea, Gaillardia, Salvia and Sedum). Plus, we include a garden plan to get you started. 

Zones:      4 - 8
