Who has a taste for asclepias?
i planted a bunch of them last fall and they have bloomed only a little before being systematically attacked and i just discovered today that something is going to eat ALL of them! the stems are being bitten cleanly off about 12" high but i think some stems are also slowly being eaten down shorter after there are no leaves left. there are no rabbit or caterpillar droppings around the plants that i can find and there are not many plants nearby for a bug to hide in.
it(they?) may be the critter(s) that ate my alternantheras flat too but they were partly trampled down to the ground as well.
whatever it is doesn't seem to like salvias or sedums, passion vines or shrubs of any kind.
birds? sqrls? rats? i do have rats eating the grapes! HELP! thanks, min
