The Monarch Magnet and must-have for landscapes. Attracts swarms of monarch butterflies during their August and September migration. Gets more comments, oohs-and-ahhs than any other flower. A visual reminder while that many plants are said to attract butterflies and pollinators, some are on a whole different level! Needs medium soil moisture, so mulch it well or add it to a rain garden.
