    When I read that you can get 500 seeds for only .99 cents, I was shocked. Butterflyweed is very expensive compared to many other seeds on the market. After I got my packet I realized that there is no way what I received was actually 500 seeds, I counted them and only got 166 seeds. I still think it is a good deal, but the listing online needs to be fixed and the printing on the seed packets for next year.

    I just bought a couple of these packets. Before I plant can you confirm this is a Native North American variety, vs the tropical type, as I heard planting the tropical type is potentially dangerous to the monarchs.

    • this is the northern type and is essential to butterflies.

    Didn’t Realize these needed to be stratified before planting so nothing ever germinated (Didn’t see any information about that). I will give them another try this year and see if I can figure them out. Given the germination rates of my other purchases I have no reason to doubt the next batch will be better with less user error.
