a small, family operated perennial and butterfly nursery located in central Pennsylvania. Having a
poor location for retail sales, we
joined rank with other cyberspace mail order nurseries in launching our first web site, ButterflyBushes.com, in 2000. At ButterflyBushes.com, we offer the gardener a nice selection of butterfly attracting plants (both nectar plants and host plants), hummingbird attracting plants, hard-to-find perennials, and butterfly bushes. We ship from May through October and guarantee satisfaction of every order shipped.
In spring, 2017, we launched Monarchs-And-Milkweed.com, because interest in Monarchs and Milkweed Plants has been growing rapidly over the past 5 or 6 years and we saw a need to create a web site that focused on just Monarchs and Milkweed. It's the case too, that we are nearing retirement and will soon be offering ButterflyBushes.com to another nursery. Once sold, we will offer only what is on this web site: Monarchs, Milkweed, and Popup Cages. We just don't have the strength and pep that we had ten or fifteen years ago.
For the customer who's interested in obtaining what they need to grow Monarch butterflies (milkweed, Monarch caterpillars, and maybe a cage to rear them in), and keep up on the status of the Monarch population, this site is for him or her.
competitively priced, and
ready for transplanting directly into the garden. Most of our perennials are shipped in
3" - 4" pots. We offer an on-line shopping cart, and for those
people who do not wish to order via the online shopping cart, we have
included on our web site an order form which you may print, fill out, and then
mail to us.
