    This is an update to my review on April 21. In late August dozens of Monarchs landed on my plants, which I can see because the window over my desk overlooks the planters. A few days later I’d say there were nearly 50 Monarch caterpillars devouring blooms, leaves, and even some stems. As of today, the foliage and blooms have nearly regenerated. Is it too much to hope for more visitors this year? I’ve seen Monarchs still migrating in the Florida panhandle in late November.

    A beautiful milkweed plant arrived in great shape and is now doing well in my yard. This plant was carefully wrapped and packed with a big root ball that was easily transplanted. Thanks so much for making sure I got the correct milkweed for my region and for helping the pollinators!

    This is now my second year ordering from Mail Order Natives (last year bought a variety of azaleas that are all thriving). This year I ordered swamp hibiscus, swamp mallow, and swamp milkweed for a new rain garden. All looked in nice shape on arrival, carefully packed, and glad to say 100% of all the plants I've bought are doing great! Look forward to ordering again in the future :)
