  • Rose Milkweed, also known as Swamp Milkweed, is a perennial herb that grows 24-40” tall. It has smooth narrow leaves and clusters of dusty rose to purple star-shaped flowers. This deer and rabbit resistant flower plays a major role in the life of monarch butterflies. It provides pollen, nectar, and habitat for this beautiful orange butterfly, as well as its caterpillars (larvae). If you have a passion for conservation, plant a collection of milkweeds and other wildflowers to help rescue the threatened butterfly population as well as those of other pollinator species like bees and hummingbirds.

    • Swamp Milkweed - Also known as rose milkweed, red milkweed, or marsh milkweed, Asclepias incarnata is a perennial wildflower with a native range over most of North America. Its flowers are a beautiful dusky pink color, with small star-shaped blooms growing in clusters. These bushes thrive in wetlands and moist outdoor conditions and will not spread as much as common milkweed.
    • Attract Monarchs - Milkweed is vital to monarch butterflies and caterpillars as food, a place to live, lay eggs, and navigate by. Bee, hummingbirds, and other wild pollinator species also will visit this bush. Help with insect conservation by adding milkweeds to your wildflower mix.
    • Cold Stratify for Better Germination - For best results, recreate winter conditions to prime the seeds for planting. For indoor seed starting, sprinkle seeds into a damp paper towel, roll up, and store in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks, then sow as usual. Stratification encourages seeds to sprout, giving you more young seedlings to become healthy plants.

Heirloom seeds are the types of seeds your grandparents grew. These varieties have been passed down from generation to generation. They’re old reliable open-pollinated varieties that aren’t typically grown commercially. Instead, they have a rich history that predates modern breeding techniques.

You can learn more about open-pollinated, heirloom, and non-GMO seeds in our Survival Garden Training blog.

The majority of our seeds are sourced in the United States, with a few exceptions when the seed is difficult to source domestically. Whenever we do have to source outside of the US, we ensure our seeds are safe to grow, non-GMO varieties that meet our standards for germination and reliability.

No, we do not pre-treat our farmer seeds. All of our garden seeds for sale are untreated, open-pollinated, non-GMO, and heirloom varieties. They are kept in temperature-controlled cooler storage until they are packed and shipped to keep them pest and disease-free.

The seeds in our collections are specifically chosen from varieties that can be successfully grown from Zone 3 to Zone 10 USDA Hardiness Zones. However, individual varieties have specific needs to thrive in different environments. Each seed pack has optimal temperatures for germination and instructions on seed starting. Consult local frost dates to plan your garden and get the most out of your seeds.

Our seeds will generally last for 3-10 years if they are appropriately stored in a cool, dry place. However, we encourage you to grow your survival seeds within a year or two of purchase. This yields the best germination rates possible and also gives you more experience growing survival food now. At the end of the growing season, follow the instructions on the back of each packet for saving seeds for future gardens. These new seeds for survival will be more adapted to thrive in the growing conditions where you are.

We sell by weight for greater accuracy. We also pick the carefully chosen varieties to create the best survival seed vault possible, instead of aiming for a higher seed count by choosing only varieties with smaller seeds.
