Monarchs EAT Butterfly Bush????

beckyjessie(z6 PA)August 19, 2007

Boy do I feel dumb. My husband & I have been watching this monarch eat our butterfly bush & didn't realize that we have a milkweed growing with our butterfly bush. I didn't plant it there! They are both in the same container. Of course the monarch is eating the milkweed, not the butterfly bush.

Thanks everyone for responding to my post, I do feel dumb!
