"I live in Pasadena and planted 3 milkweed (including 1 asclepias physocarpa) in September. Within 2 weeks, I observed several Monarchs and soon after a continuous cycle of caterpillars. I'm so excited to do my small part to restoring the Monarch population and am planning on planting more milkweed." - Nancy Shiffman
