USGA Summary Points:Transplanting seedlings was more reliable than seeding for establishing milkweed stands. All eight species of milkweeds evaluated were suitable for larval growth but the taller species (common, swamp, and showy milkweed) yielded the most monarchs. Common, swamp, butterfly, and narrow-leaf milkweeds were the best for supporting bees. Common, showy, and narrow-leaf milkweeds spread from tillers making them the best suited species for establishing large stands in naturalized roughs. Swamp and butterfly did not spread so they are better suited for use in high-profile sites. Value of golf courses for monarch conservation was publicized in national media.
