Milkweed Is Not Good For Home Gardens


May 28, 2018

In a recent article in The Transylvania Times, milkweed was discussed as a way to provide habitat for the Monarch butterfly. Just a caution to anyone thinking about planting milkweed.

Milkweed is not recommended for the home garden. It spreads by runners underground and can take over a garden space. I did not know this when I planted my milkweed a couple of years ago. I am constantly working to stop the propagation of the milkweed. It has spread throughout my home garden space.
