Connecticut has ten native
milkweed species. If you are interested in finding out how many
milkweed species are native in your state you can use the Milkweed Map to
Locate Native Milkweed. Lynn grows and plants a few beautiful
kinds of milkweed.
Most milkweeds are perennial flowers
that will grow back to provide habitat each summer. Plant it once

For years I have been searching

grow. Fireworks seem pretty close. It's often around the 4th of

Earth Day is April 22, 2018.
Lynn likes to plant milkweed as an Earth Day activity. "Do

Now is the time to plant the milkweed seed that becomes the POM~POM
Paradise of tomorrow. In addition to milkweed being the sole food
source of the monarch butterfly caterpillar (Max and Maisy) it
is also a flower that provides very high value as a nectar source
for bees and other pollinators.
