Where to Buy Milkweed

Upcoming 2017 Plant Sales

Plant Nurseries by State Selling Milkweed (Asclepias)

In response to demand, we are providing a list of plant nurseries in the Southwest that carry milkweed. Please always call first to verify it is in stock as supplies may vary seasonally and frequently sell out during peak planting seasons. Please email info@swmonarchs.org with additional plant sales or nurseries around the Southwest so we can keep everyone aware of where to find milkweed locally.

Some nurseries sell plants treated with topical or systemic insecticides—be sure to ask! Remember monarchs are insects and insecticides are harmful—don’t buy them!
