Milkweed Plants: Butterfly gardening at its best with this type of plant, The regal monarch butterfly recently landed on the endangered species list. But one action you can take to help restore their numbers is adding milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) plants to your garden. Swamp Milkweed Could Save the Monarch Butterfly This North American native species nourishes the monarch butterfly's larvae. Indeed, milkweed is the only plant that can give its eggs, larvae and newly hatched caterpillars protection from predators and the sustenance they need. Since monarch butterflies only exist on the North American continent, from Canada to Mexico, it makes sense that they adapted along with this once-abundant native plant. As America grew from the east coast, large swaths of natural meadows fell victim to land clearing for development. Most likely unknowingly to the earliest developers, they destroyed the food necessary for the monarch to raise their young. Scientists placed monarchs on the endangered list with one bright spot. If every gardener across North America plants milkweed, there is still hope. We can reverse this cycle by restoring the habitat the monarch butterfly needs for its survival. Besides being the nectar that could save the monarchs, milkweed is a grand flower that deserves a sunny spot in your garden. Swamp Milkweed - Asclepias Incarnata Plant care and maintenance A full-grown Asclepias incarnata plant can reach a stately height of almost five feet. You may wonder how the weight of the long, narrow, willow-like leaves, tall stalks, and flowers don't topple the plant. Don't worry--the long taproot will keep Asclepias incarnata well-secured all season long. Furthermore, the long taproots of the plant will help keep your soil loosened for proper water and nutrient absorption. The gorgeous cotton candy flowers bloom in vibrant pink, purple, and lavender hues. Milkweed gains that fluffy appearance as many small, vanilla-scented flowers form around a central flower in a clustered head. The perennial plants seed themselves, forming inside pods that dry out in the summer heat and then burst open to reproduce the following season. They are easy-growing plants that want nothing more than a full-sun location, well-amended soil, and moisture--but with good drainage. The name milkweed refers to the white, sticky fluid you would see if you break off a stem. Do Your Part to Save Monarch Butterflies…Order Swamp Milkweed Today Swamp Milkweed is available online at TN Nursery Please feel free to order milkweed today--the existence of monarch butterflies depends on concerned gardeners like you.

Goat's Beard Plant: Aruncus dioicus, aka bride's feathers or the goat's beard plant, is a deciduous perennial wildflower with soaring height and a striking feathery plume on top. The species is native to several continents, including Europe, Asia, and North America. Goat's beard plants grow naturally in filtered sunshine or full sun locations. The native habitat of Aruncus dioicus is a forest clearing, rich with organic matter and consistent moisture (without sogginess!). As a native species, goat's beard plants are well-adjusted across much of the United States, preferring moderate temperate climates. When you add a few goat's beard plants to your yard, it becomes a showstopper. The goat's beard is a centerpiece that attracts attention thanks to its soaring height and signature plume. Goat's Beard Can Host the Rarely-Sighted Dusky Azure Butterfly The dusky azure butterfly is a rare sight. It relies on the goat's beard plant as its larval host. Without a plentiful goat's beard, the dusky azure cannot lay eggs--it depends on the plant's nectar and its large, dense foliage to hide the eggs and new caterpillars from predatory birds. Dusty azure interactions most commonly occur in the higher elevations of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Georgia. Sparse sightings have also happened in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee, and north as far as Indiana. The dusky azure butterfly is elusive and rare, but as they seek new habitats, planting Aruncus dioicus might help--it's at least worth a try to save them. The Feathery Plume of the Goat's Beard Plant Is So Unique The goat's beard plant can grow as high as six feet and spread through a vigorous root system, giving them about four feet of elbow room. Large bright green leaves grow on narrow but sturdy stems. Each leaf can reach two to four feet long, is oval-shaped, and has serrated edges. The tall, feathery, cream-colored spikes rise from the leaves and tower above them at the end of spring or early summer. When the plumes finish showing off, some gardeners cut them back to make the plant grow into a bushier shape. Others, however, leave them to go to seed and watch the birds descend on the tall spikes to collect the bounty.
