Welcome To Monarchs-And-Milkweed.com
(Rose Franklin's Perennials, Spring Mills, PA)
Here at Monarchs-And-Milkweed.com, we offer what you need to grow Monarch
butterflies: (1) Monarch eggs and/or larvae (caterpillars), (2) milkweed plants for
the caterpillars to feed on, and (3) easy to use, clean, and store Popup
mesh cages. We also offer information on how to raise Monarchs in
your home or in the classroom. Whether you're new to raising Monarchs or
you've been growing them for years, you'll likely find Monarchs-And-Milkweed.com an asset for both learning about and acquiring what you need to grow

|During the shipping season (May thru October), our Facebook fans will receive notification of special promotions being offered on our web site. Occasionally we have an abundance of Monarch caterpillars and/or pupae and offer them at a reduced price for just a few days. Unless you check our web site every day, you might miss out on the special offers if you're not a Facebook fan and receive the posts that advertise the flash deals being offered.|
Butterfly Enthusiasts are cordially
invited to attend
Whichever day you attend, the
schedule is the same: The day begins at 11:00 AM with a free
45-minute presentation on How To Attract Butterflies To Your Property.
Participants will then be welcome to explore our butterfly gardens and
tour the butterfly nursery (where we hand rear hundreds of butterflies
every summer) and butterfly flight room (where numerous species of PA
native butterflies fly, nectar on flowers, and lay eggs).
Please check our website the day before the scheduled dates to verify that the program is still being offered. An unexpected emergency could cause cancellation.

there won’t be many perennials blooming yet in our gardens, you’ll be
welcome to stroll around our property and look at the many gardens which
are greening up and preparing to gift us with another season of beauty and

Driving Directions to
Rose Franklin’s Perennials:
in central Pennsylvania, our nursery is just 30 minutes from State
College, Bellefonte, or Milroy.
From Centre Hall:
at the intersection of Route 45 and Route 144, take Route 45 East
(toward Millheim). Go
approximately 5 1/2 miles and turn right onto Kline Road.
Go 1 mile and turn left onto Penns Creek Road.
Go almost 2 miles and turn right onto Spruce Lane.
Our nursery will be the fourth place on the left (where Spruce Lane
and Butterfly Lane intersect).
Road would be easy to miss. Look for it in the small village of Penn Hall,
between the first two houses on the right.
not publish a printed catalog.
Our inventory of both milkweed plants and Monarch availability changes on a regular basis during the shipping season. The milkweed species we offer in May usually differs from what we offer in July, and what we offer in July is often different from what we offer in September. Once we start shipping Monarch eggs, caterpillars (larvae), and chrysalises (pupae), inventory changes on a day to day basis. Because our inventory changes from week to week, a catalog just would not work for our business. Our web site functions as our catalog.
