Milkweed is starting to grow. Monarch caterpillars need milkweed to eat.

I found some small plants of Showy Milkweed in the Oahe Downstream Recreation Area Butterfly Garden. I could not find any of the other milkweed we have planted - whorled, dwarf, swamp, common. Hopefully they are just getting a late start.

A botanist friend will be experimenting with more milkweed plots to see how best to grow them and which species the monarchs like best.
