Milkweed may be becoming a rarity in farmland but there are areas where it is growing wild. Read more to see where I found milkweed in my community.
June 8th follow up visit to the milkweed patches.
Blooms are amazing!
Here I have shared the two milkweed plant species that are native in Nevada. Take some time now to learn more about native Milkweed species where you live. Here I have a clickable map to milkweed native to your state.
In the last month I have located a lot of additional locations with milkweed growing. So far the most popular place for monarchs is Mayberry Park. There are also lots of monarch eggs planted under the leaves of the Showy Milkweed that is growing there. One of the eggs hatched into a monarch caterpillar.
