Milkweeds are herbaceous perennials celebrated for their ability to attract swarms of pollinators, including butterflies, moths, bees and wasps. More famously, milkweed is the food plant of the monarch butterfly larva. The flowers of these plants can be white, pink or orange depending on the variety. This sweater design depicts the milkweed plant that is native to Alabama—often referred to as butterfly weed. In the humid summers of the South, these orange flowers can be seen dotting patches of brush and skirting the pine and deciduous forests. They are always a pleasing sight!
