Green Milkweed is an easy to grow, deer resistant, North American native that can be found from Ohio to Nebraska south to Florida and Texas. It attracts butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and all sort of other beneficial creatures. The leaves are an important food source for the monarch butterfly caterpillar. We grow it for its bushy form and clusters of unusual green flowers.
