    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 :)

    Aquatic milkweed

    Posted by Kathy on Oct 28th 2020

    So happy with these plants! Arrived in perfect condition and one even had flowers. Another company I ordered from sent me 2 dry sticks, one with the roots broken off—prob total waste of money. I will definitely order from Mail Order Natives again.

    Asclepias perennis (aquatic milkweed)

    Posted by Jeanell Strickland on Apr 9th 2020

    My perennis plant arrived quickly and well packaged. It looked a bit sad and weary, but 2 days after planting, it was perking up. One week later, the buds are open and there is an abundance of new growth. I'm very pleased with my purchase!

    I can always use another milkweed in my garden and these plants arrived in very good shape and good sized. Everyone should plant milkweed and I am glad Mail Order Natives always has a good supply.
