I placed another group of previously confined adult females in the field on young, non-flowering milkweed Asclepias
syriaca plants, sites previously recognized as favored nesting places (Morse 1985).
Other works include the Sweet Rose Collection, Whispering Collection and the Asclepias
The first plants to inhabit the study site after disturbance presumably belonged to native species such as Eleocharis rostellata and Asclepias
tuberosa, and to escaped species grown elsewhere in cultivation, for example, Juniperus horizontalis.
The vibrant orange-flowered butterfly weed Asclepias
tuberosa can be seen with monarchs and morning cloaks fluttering around it.
ABSTRACT--A large population of antelope-horn milkweed, Asclepias
viridis Walter, (ASCLEPIADACEAE) was studied during the growing seasons of 1997 and 1998.
Flowers are everywhere at the Whittaker Farm covering the alphabetic bases, germinating with Asclepias
and somehow not seeming to end with Zinnia.
viridis Walter (Green milkweed; TAC 4230 ) is a native forb that occurs in east and southeast Texas as well as west in the West Cross Timbers and Edwards Plateau where it occurs on disturbed ground, prairies, ditch banks, and pastures and can become abundant in overgrazed areas (Diggs et al.
Sisyrinchium albidum, Asclepias
verticillata, and Croton monanthogynus.
