Monarchs need Milkweed
Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) is now blooming at the Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens.
This stunning native plant is rare across its range due to the aggressive eradication of its relative, Common Milkweed (Asclepias Syriaca.)
Milkweeds are the only larval host for Monarch butterflies.
Planting Swamp Milkweed in your garden is a great way to attract butterflies while supporting biodiversity.
