Butterfly Weed Seeds - Art Seed Packs

Get a start on your garden! These beautiful art seed packets are filled with high-quality seeds and feature the commissioned works of contemporary artists around the United States.

Build a buffet for the butterflies!

Keeping butterfly populations happy and robust is a team effort, one that cannot be achieved by plantings of common milkweed alone. Although related, Butterfly Weed is a different species, with a wider native range and a habit and growth schedule that is all its own. It tends to flower for a longer duration of time than common milkweed, and it lacks milky sap. The nectar within its blooms attracts butterflies of all types, and the larvae of monarchs feed on the leaves. Long live the lepidoptera!

Art Seed Packets: Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
