Milkweed

Milkweed Photo Album

 

The TGO Nature Center is pleased to present this Milkweed Photo Album.  We hope the photos below will help in the identification of this important Monarch Butterfly plant.

There are different varieties of milkweed.  This plant is essential for the monarch butterfly whose population is declining at an alarming rate.  At TGO, we are trying to increase the milkweed plantings to do our part in helping the beautiful monarch.  Click on any of the photos to enlarge them.

To read more about the plight of the monarch butterfly, please click on Monarch Butterfly to read an excellent article written by Cary Salter.  But first, enjoy these photos below of milkweed.

Jim Dick took the photos below of milkweed which has been planted around Lake Judy at TGO.
