|I never even tried. I will go out for a sniff soon.|
I have a pot of lemon verbena near the door. I rub it each time I walk by or let the dog in. Suppose to keep away mosquitoes .

|I was thinking about butterflies and hence about butterfly weed. I didn't look at your photo until now and I remember milkweed when I lived in Canada. I will look for it when I visit. I don't think it can grow in Texas.|

|Very good advice Lee Anne. What kind of milkweed is in your picture? Are they all that big? I like the size on that one. |

|Saw this in the random area of the site and thought I would post this,|
In the local box store this year, I found scarlet milkweed... I picked up three and they are planted outside my workshop. They seem to be struggling with the Florida heat even with receiving water almost daily. I hope they will do better once the roots get better established.
