which i am delighted to see. So, I'm going to save the seeds, and add them to the milkweed kit, and the butterfly, bee, and hummingbird mix i ordered for along my driveway.

I grew native milkweed and raised 27 monarchs and counting. A good mix of flowers and native milkweed is good for monarchs and bees.

All yellow, about 2" across. I tried to find out what kind it is, but there are sooooooo many yellow ones. I was happy to see it, though.
