What are your "go-to" monarch plants in a perennial border?

I'd be lying if I said I had a plan, or that I've done this before... I raised 48 from egg last year, this year, I plan on 100s...

Over the winter I studied them and what plants they like over others.

First and foremost MILKWEED
The only plant they will breed on.

For a food source, I'll go purple cone flowers, salvia, and butterfly bush for mains.

This is my first year gardening from spring on forward, I will have pictures and videos on my channel on YouTube as I go and grow along.
