Butterfly Milkweed Studs (Asclepias tuberosa)

These tiny flowers belong to the butterfly milkweed plant. In nature, they bloom in tightly-packed orange clusters. The milkweed is quite poisonous, but shares a unique symbiotic relationship with the Monarch butterfly.

As one of the few insects immune to the poison of the milkweed, monarchs choose to lay their larvae only on this species of plant. In exchange for the protection of its young, the butterfly pollinates the milkweed flowers.

Cast in sterling silver, we polish the edges to a glossy shine.

  • Sterling silver

  • ⅜” diameter

  • Ships in 1-2 days
