Monarch Butterfly Nectar Plant Lists for Conservation Plantings is a helpful tool for ecological restoration, providing lists of plants known to support monarch adults and caterpillars. Based on input from biologists at the Xerces Society and federal, state, and private conservation organizations and research institutions, the lists highlight flowering times relative to monarch presence, availability as seed or in containers, moisture needs, and other information helpful for conservation planners.
