Milkweed is a host plant for the Queen Butterfly, Tussock Moth, and of course, the Monarch Butterfly larva. It also serves as a nectar plant for Karner Blues aka Melissa Blue (I prefer Melissa Blue to Karner! Heehee 😀) Spicebush, Giant, Pipevine and Tiger Swallowtails as well as hummingbird moths and so many more.
