Note – the picture is common milkweed grown by Weldon, right behind Ronnie’s Cine. He’s got at least fifty various milkweed plants growing along with a lot of new zinnia plants. It should be spectacular later in the summer.

    We are in zone 7 in Texas, we consider ourselves enthusiasts and  was disappointed when we realized this class is in Missouri, would like to inquire if you could recommend any resources via internet, we love the butterflies and have a garden that will accommodate them, very excited to hear feedback from you!!
