Milkweed source

I'm a Grant County resident, and I'm looking for a local source for milkweed seed balls, etc. I want to expand my backyard butterfly garden. Thanks! Betty Brockhoff

milkweed is an undesired species in many areas outside of a small butterfly garden. Seeds are easily dispersed and propogate in areas where they are unwanted. Please consider cultivars from the publication at the link for plant species that are beneficial for the butterflies and the other environment. https://entomology.ca.uky.edu/ef006
