Milkweed (FIRST sighted)
Sightings report image

Date: 05/12/2019

This is the larger of two established common milkweeds I saw in the native garden at Christ Church, Waukegan today. I actually saw this one yesterday, but took the picture today. It's about 3 1/2 inches tall, and grew half an inch in a day. (It wasn't there when I checked last Sunday.)

The milkweed is late this year. And there is no sign of any in my yard yet, a few towns away. It's too cold. (But I wintersowed a few different varieties in trays and jugs, and many of them have germinated, and are about an inch tall. I'm not counting them, though.)
