Thank you Kim. I have 3 varieties of milkweed in my garden along with dill. I normally get a lot of Monarch and Swallowtail visitors to my garden, so I had hoped to entice even more by providing them with host plants for egg laying. This summer....only spotted one Monarch and just a couple of black and yellow swallowtails. Kind of distressed about the decline in visitors.
