The first time I saw this plant was when I was checking out some property to buy in Tennessee. It is so formally beautiful among the scraggely weeds that always grow on a neglected property. Bright orange against all the other muted colors. No wonder the butterflies love it.

It is a pretty plant, Gloria, and now that orange is such a popular garden color, it's getting more popular, too. And great for the butterflies.

Thank you!

I didn't know they were good for anything other than looking pretty and attracting butterflies! Thanks for another informative, entertaining story, Sharon.
I'll bet that handsome boy still wonders what ever became of you, too.

Hi KY...I doubt it. Never heard a word from or about Bruce. It's a shame, isn't it??

But anyway, thanks for reading the story. Hope you are well!

I happened upon www.Got-Milkweed.com and ordered what they called "Milkweed" and what I call butterfly weed. (Our Illinois milkweed looks much different) The site is into preserving and increasing Monarch butterflies. This spring, I received 12 plants for a small donation and all lived and have started to flower.

Don't we all wish for an Aunt Bett growing up! Thanks for sharing.
