Each season we offer a limited production run of uncommon to rare host and nectar plants that we grow from seed. Quantities of each species are limited and will not be restocked once sold out until the following year.

Buy these plants to raise specific butterflies or moths
Host plants are the food of butterfly and moth larvae. These plants can be very specific to the species of moth or butterfly. For example, the Black Swallowtail caterpillar feeds on plants in the Apiaceae and Rutacea families.
Buy these plants to attract pollinators
Nectar plants are used by adult moths, butterflies, other pollinator insects, and hummingbirds as sources of food. When they drink nectar from the flower they assist with pollination.
Buy these plants to raise Monarch butterflies
Milkweed plants serve as the host plant for Monarch, Queen, and Soldier butterflies. We offer a selection of both native and non-native milkweeds to feed hungry caterpillars.
