Myrtle Glen is a Monarch Waystation Habitat certified with Monarch Watch
ID 5208, certified 7/25/11
|the 'official' sign|
Monarch caterpillars feed exclusively on plants in the milkweed family.
Milkweed plants in their natural habitat are declining due to development and use of chemicals in farmlands and roadside management.
Monarch butterflies need our help!
Every garden should plant some milkweed, every little plant helps.
By creating and maintaining a Monarch Waystation we help assure the preservation of the Monarchs and their spectacular migration phenomenon.
plant it and they will come :)
|Giant Milkweed flower|
Common butterfly weed(yellow and orange varieties) is readily available in nurseries and garden centers, and swamp milkweed (in different colors) and Giant Swan Milkweed, or Balloon plant, grow easy from seeds.
