There are about 10 of these. White ones aren't coming up. Host to pests. No monarch butterfly eggs. I would be very surprised to ever see a monarch here 🦋 #milkweed

We get monarch butterflies here but I've never come across one of their caterpillars or cocoons!

I've only just started looking for them. The plants are big now so if they're going to come they have food! Have you looked under the foliage? @gjones

Oh no, we don't like wind or anything that's gone with it 😱

But now I will anticipate where they might come up. Definitely to the west side of these plants @midnightgardener

My pride and joy this year. A few plants made it, nice and strong. Started 2017 early winter. The bees love it. No sign of monarchs yet. #butterflymilkweed #fromseed

Oh that is pretty too Laura. Do they self-seed or do you sow the seeds each autumn?

They act like a perennial. They don't seem to self seed, but the plant comes back. I was blown away by them because I didn't expect them the second year. Great structure too which you can't really see here. I'll just send you a little cocktail of seeds. You will have fun with these 3. @awomanonabike

Thank you Laura. I’m loving that I have time to do things like sow seeds. I’ve always done a few but would then be too busy or distracted to look after them properly with the expected disastrous effects 🙄 I shall really look forward to receiving them xx

It is and I’ll be so excited when yours start to grow and I promise I’ll post photos of mine (that’ll make sure I look after them 😉😂)
