Sandhill Milkweed

Sandhill or Pinewood milkweed is an essential plant that grows in sandhill habitat. I only see these growing sporadically, odd places. It’s where ever the seed falls, take root in the loose sand and flourish, which seems like a huge challenge!

An incredible and extremely important plant for pollinators like the Monarch butterfly.

*Remember plants like these are in the forest for a reason, leave them where you found them. There are hundreds of wildlife species that depend on plants like these for their survival.

Check out your local Native Plant Societies for purchasing plants for your yard.
