Welcome To 

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 Monarchs. 
   To ship Monarchs across any state line, in any life stage, permission must be granted by the USDA. We've obtained permits to ship Monarch eggs, caterpillars, pupae, and adults to most of the eastern half of the U.S. Those states are listed on the 'Monarch Larvae' page. Please do not place an order if you do not live in one of the listed states.
   Our milkweed plants can't be shipped across the entire U.S. either. On the 'Milkweed Plants' page, we list the states we are permitted to ship the plants to. On the FAQ page, you'll find an explanation of why we can't ship plants further than we do.
    Even if you don't live in a state we are permitted to ship Monarchs and Milkweed plants to, you'll likely find a lot of valuable information about Monarchs and Milkweed on our web pages.
    If you raise Monarchs, I suggest you take a look at the PDF on Raising OE-Free Monarchs. To view this file, go to the 'Raising Monarchs' page, scroll down until you see 'Raising OE-Free Monarchs, and then click on the words 'download the PDF'. You'll be presented with a 50+ page slide show that you can look through online or download to your computer. I highly recommend that you download it to your computer so you'll have it for future reference.
    We hope you enjoy your visit to our web site!

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 when they are offered.

We do not publish a printed catalog.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.


We ship milkweed from May through October and offer two ways to order:
(1) Use our on-line shopping cart  which utilizes secure PayPal payment or  (2) Print our on-line order form, fill it out, and then mail it to us, along with your payment (personal check or money order).

Before ordering from us, please be sure you live in a state that we are permitted to ship plants to (list posted above). Do not order from us if your state is not among the states we can ship to.
