At Wilton Place, we are very lucky to have lots of beautiful Milkweed in our garden. It provides the favorite snack for the this iconic larvae the Monarch caterpillar getting ready for a winter roost.
No other butterfly on earth travels as far as the Monarch butterfly does. The U.S., the eastern population migrates both north and south on an annual basis and can travel as far as 3 thousands miles.
We are very lucky to have such a wonderful climate and garden that can attract so many of these beauties. Munch way little guy, we planted these for you!
