I've allowed the milkweed to infiltrate the borders of my garden. It's taken a couple years of encouraging them to grow, taking out some of the non-native ornamentals to give them room, and even giving them a drink during the hot season. But this year they are blooming and attracting a variety of insects. Here are a couple of the butterflies that have been hanging around.
