Artist: David Howell & Company (Bedford Hills, NY)

The monarch butterfly – with its easily recognizable orange-and-black pattern – will only lay its eggs on milkweed plants, the primary food source for monarch caterpillars. The disappearance of milkweed from the monarch's habitat has greatly impacted its population. Individuals can help by planting native milkweed in their gardens.

Monarchs need milkweed to survive. Unfortunately, monarch numbers are declining, partly because milkweed habitat is disappearing. You can help this iconic butterfly and many other pollinators by creating a habitat that includes milkweed and other flowers!

Gardens, meadows, fields, and other habitats can all be ideal places for milkweed. The flowers will lure even more color to your home with the many butterflies and pollinators they attract.
