Save the Monarchs, but.....

I love this plant because it provides food for the stressed Monarch butterflies, however, I think they should warn gardeners that this type of milkweed is invasive; spreading by sending underground roots. It is not an especially pretty plant. Because of these two factors, I am happy that I have a large enough yard (well part of it is really a meadow) that I can accommodate such a plant without problem. But if I had a smaller patch, I would not plant milkweed there. True to form, the first year I planted it, I saw monarch caterpillars happily munching away!

Hi Alfred! Thanks for leaving a review. Cinderella Swamp milkweed is actually a native plant (or nativar) that does spread by underground rhizomes, but that does not make it invasive! Invasive plants are non-native and cause ecological damage - which Cinderella Swamp does not! It may become a nuisance for gardeners if left unmonitored, but it is certainly beneficial for pollinators. Hope you enjoy it in your backyard meadow!
