Milkweed Vine, for Those of Us Who Have Trouble Growing Other Milkweeds

I have great hope for this plant to provide the abundant Milkweed we need to raise many Monarchs and Queens. This plant is also a powerful magnet for all kinds of pollinators, including bees and many other butterflies.

Yes, the Milkweed Vine, Funastrun cynanchoides has worked very well, I have raised 38 Monarchs indoors with it this year.
The vine blooms in August and it is also a great source of nectar for butterflies. Smiling
