Monarch Milkweed

Lynn Nemeth, Executive DIrector of the Arboretum at Flagstaff, stands in a green house with a Horsetail Milkweed plant, one of several varieties being planted in hopes of helping to restore declining Monarch butterfly populations. Monarchs lay their eggs on Milkweed and it is the only plant that their larvae eat making it extremely critical for the species.
