10 Giant Swan Plant seeds (Gomphocarpus physocarpus).

A foodplant for the Monarch & Lesser Wanderer Butterflies.

Giant Swan Plants are great for attracting the Monarch butterfly to your garden as they provide food for their caterpillars and nectar for the adults. This is the larger 'Swan Plant' that grows into a bush providing lots of caterpillar food. You are bound to get Butterflies come lay eggs, which will result in having caterpillars to watch develop, change into pupae and hatch into the next generation of adults.

Growing instructions included with seed. Keep them protected from winter frosts & they will be a strong good sized plant for the spring caterpillars.

Sales will help fund a New Zealand Butterfly website that TradeMe will not let me mention.

Postage can be combined as I also have listings for other food & nectar plants or seeds if you want to provide more nectar & caterpillar food to visiting Butterflies. Just let me know at purchase time.

I post plants in reused packaging which otherwise would go to landfill.
If you sell stuff, please copy. :)
