Growing false foxglove(I got seeds)
False foxglove is sporadic here and when I find some Buckeye cats are
Usually on it,and chrysalis too.This fall I waited until the stems turned
Brown,and took some seed.If anybody on the forum grows it I would
Really appreciate some advice on starting a patch closer to the house
So I could consolidate and help the plants to get as many cats thru
Cycle as possible..There are plenty of nectar sources for the butterflies
Here.The problem is that host plants are frequently quite scattered here,and some of them are not in good situations to thrive.
I do have some Purple Vervain here that I transplanted from the river
To a spot close to the house,and it has lived for years.
