Milkweed Vine, for Those of Us Who Have Trouble Growing Other Milkweeds

I have great hope for this plant to provide the abundant Milkweed we need to raise many Monarchs and Queens. This plant is also a powerful magnet for all kinds of pollinators, including bees and many other butterflies.

... is the milkvine I grow in my back woods. The Queens and Swallowtails flock to it. The pods can also be eaten although I've never tried that.

Nice article, Josephine.

I am glad you have other Milkweed vines in your area for the Monarchs, It seems that many of the milkweeds in the wild have been eliminated due cultivation urban expansion and the use of herbicides. Rolling my eyes.
