So I have 8 swamp milkweeds in pots on our deck. Two that I had overwintered in the garage are just breaking ground and one is more advanced. The other 5 are first year plants grown in the greenhouse this past winter. They are less than a foot high and were put in pots about a week ago.
I have been checking them daily and tonight I found 5 eggs. So I brought them and it will be interesting to see how many eggs I find on them this year. Last year it was 135 on just 4 plants.
