Butterfly Garden Improvements

What’s that?!  A hole in our garden that must be filled!  No butterfly garden is complete without a nice selection of species from the Asclepias genus. We’re talking about milkweed, here!  Many of us are familiar with our native thin-leaved milkweed, however the genus is LARGE and full of exciting species.  Some of these species reach heights of six feet and have a large shrub/small tree sort of appearance.  We’ve had the good fortune of locating some of these rarities, and will be planting out the area with a good supply of other butterfly attractants as fall approaches.  Have a look at the area in question, and keep an eye out as we make progress.
