This year my tropical milkweed got exceptionally tall (at least from what I observed here other years). It is about 4 feet tall and seems almost like a jungle when I'm trying to look for cats. Just yesterday I found about 40. I hope most of them make it...most of them are already fairly big. It's so hard to go through all of the milkweed when the plants are this big. They apparently mustn't have minded the dry summer; I didn't even water them and they look so nice and healthy. Here you can see them for yourself and I didn't even know when I took the picture that there's a Monarch cat near the front.
