Milkweed

The kids brought home their baby milkweed plants! They will need some care with daily watering for the next few weeks. As the plants grow you will be able to plant them outside in the ground or a pot. Eventually the milkweed will grow orange flowers that all butterflies will enjoy. The leaves of milkweed are the only food of monarch caterpillars so having milkweed growing is essential to the survival of the species!
