Clear Lake Chapter

Clear Lake Chapter Hosts Native Milkweed Sale

The Clear Lake Chapter is having a “pop-up” native milkweed sale on Tuesday, February 20, from 9 to 11 a.m. The sale will be at EIH on the UH-Clear Lake campus.

All milkweed plants – $5 each – CASH only

The six milkweed species featured at the sale include:

Aquatic Milkweed (Asclepias perennis) is ideal for wetland areas, though it also does well in gardens. Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) attracts not only Monarchs but a myriad of pollinators, making it an excellent choice for butterfly gardens.

Slim Milkweed (Asclepias linearis) and Green Milkweed (Asclepias viridis) are versatile species that adapt well to various soil types. Zizotes Milkweed (Asclepias oenotheroides) and Whorled Milkweed (Asclepias verticillata) add aesthetic appeal with their distinct foliage.

The Clear Lake Chapter encourages residents to seize this opportunity to embellish their gardens with native milkweed.
