It's a weed for your garden (as it's name shows)?

This is a milkweed, this is what the Monarch caterpillar eats before emerging as a butterfly. @rikkie

@kaigia I've seen a David Attenborough documentary about migration of Monarch butterflies from the US to South America! So, they also fly from Canada as well?

We live just north of the US (50°N) and they fly here; however, I am not sure exactly how far north they do travel. @rikkie

@kaigia very close to the US. The butterflies don't care about the border😁
