Abstract

The Iowa State University Monarch Research Team developed this seed mix for research purposes. The mix includes three milkweed species. Milkweed is the only host plant for monarch caterpillars. The mix also contains nectar-producing species that benefit butterflies as well as many pollinators, such as bees. All species are perennials native to Iowa.
