Monarchs and Milkweed

Monarch caterpillars need milkweed to survive.  I planted some last summer and was thrilled when the caterpillars started to appear!

    Aren’t they great? I “rescued” one yesterday when I saw it leaving the bush and it’s just starting to pupate now. I agree with you Swan Bush and Monarchs are a perfect match.
