Here is the first post on our new "MILKWEED" Forum. Please let all you friends know it's up and running and let's all start posting everything that's MILKWEED.
Wow, I'm surprised, didn't really believe it would happen!
The Milkweed forum is not yet listed on the main garden forum page as they are re-doing it also. For now you will have to access it at:
Just a suggestion...when posting the url on other forums, it makes it easier for people if you can post it into the Optional Link URL like this below:
One more pic, a Queen butterfly on Texas Milkweed, A. texana.

Sorry for a little confusion about how to access the new forum. This is all new territory for me.
We have arrived. As of this morning we are listed in the garden forum's main index page so folks should be able to find it without much trouble.
Please let all your fellow Gardenwebbers and friends know about our forum and hopefully within the next year we will have one location for folks to go to find out anything they need to know about milkweeds.
Thanks again for everyone's help.
This is so fantastic!! Glad to see our milkweed forum is officially up and running!
How exciting, a milkweed forum! I didn't discover this until last week after Wildflowerman posted at the milkweed newbie thread on the Seed Exchange.
And gorgeous pics! Here's a couple from this year. The milkweed did well...the Monarchs were scarce - only 2 sightings all season, and I didn't find any eggs to raise. :(
The same bed from another angle.
Two pics of Redring. Any plant this beautiful shouldn't have "weed" in its name.
Beautiful photos, all. Thank you so much for sharing.
ahh ahhh AHCOO
