Milkweed is the most important plant to a Monarch  butterfly. It is a host plant for eggs, food for caterpillars, holds the chrysalis, and is a place for Monarchs to rest. Also butterflies need nectar from plants in flower gardens. It is essential to plant seeds and plants that are native to your community.
