Welcome butterfly lovers! Douglas-Michel Butterfly Plants is dedicated to providing quality butterfly plants and seeds that attract butterflies, especially Monarchs. Our specialty is growing Monarch host plants including Ascelpias curassavica ("Silky Gold" and "Red Butterfly"), Asclepias Speciosa, and Asclepias Fruticosa (nut tree). We also sell perennials that provide nectar for butterflies including a number of types of English Lavender, Sweet William, and Buddleias. All or our plants are PESTICIDE FREE. Although we specialize in selling host plants for Monarchs, we do not provide Monarch eggs or caterpillars.
We are located 3.5 miles west of Aromas
, California in Monterey
County, the agriculture belt of the Central Coast. Our
farm is on 3.5 acres overlooking Watsonville,
which is 6 miles west of Aromas. We normally sell plants at special events like Aromas Day, Monarch Day at Natural Bridges, and at our nursery by appointment only. You can take a self-guided tour of our 3.5 acre property and see exactly how we grow the milkweed to assist you with your butterfly garden planning. Unfortunately, we do not sell plants over the Internet, but we do sell milkweed seed packets on the Internet. Douglas Michel milkweed seeds packets can also be purchased at Natural Bridges State Park Interpretation Center in Santa Cruz, California.
