Monarchs and Milkweeds

This fall, Glenn and I were pleased to observe Monarchs, and we plan to increase the native milkweeds in our landscape.  Here is a good resource:  http://www.xerces.org/milkweed/.  Also, it looks like Hop’n Blueberry Farm in Black Mtn. sells milkweed and provides informational tours.  If you know of any other local sources for native milkweed that haven’t been treated with insecticides or pesticides, please share.    It is such a joy to be still and observe.
