Quotes

"As the caterpillars grow, they feed voraciously on milkweed leaves, often stripping the stems bare. Monarch caterpillars are not affected by the toxic substances in milkweed plants, and those chemicals protect also the adult butterflies from predators. Birds that taste a monarch find them extremely distasteful and will avoid that orange and black coloration."
...said that he has seen Monarchs in the Overpeck Butterfly Garden in Leonia and that there are reports that they have laid eggs on milkweeds there. "It's been slow with some species especially with the Monarchs but they are picking up" he said
"But they have to know the demand is there. Go to your retail nurseries and tell them what you're looking for. The next time they place an order with the wholesaler, they'll inquire about the plants you've asked about. The more we ask for natives the more the wholesalers will grow them."
