Please clarify: Monarch food source v. host plant
Please clarify this for me. I just got an email from the "Defenders of Wildlife" and it makes a statement that the "...only food source" for the Monarch BF is the milkweed.
I *thought* I read it somewhere (here?) that the milkweed is one of many/several FOOD/NECTAR sources, but is actually the only HOST plant for egg laying.
Is this not correct?
