Anne is a butterfly lover and she has been diligently growing beautiful Asclepias (Milkweed) at Michler's farm for several years.  Below is a video Anne made of Monarch Caterpillars chomping down on some of Michler's Milkweed.

Interested in planting some Asclepias for the Monarchs? Michler's grows and sells several varieties and we still have a few left.  

Want to see some examples? Don't miss the upcoming Monarch Waystation Garden Tour organized by the Lexington Chapter of Wild Ones.  More information can be found at

Michler's accountant, Neil Morrison, has one of the Monarch Waystations on tour (yes, even the number crunchers here are plant people).  There is also an informal gathering following the garden tour at the Kentucky Native Café here at Michler's Greenhouses.
