Gulf frits totally out of hand
I have been inundated with butterflies this year. At any given time, you can see multiple GF flying around. Constance Elliott is their favorite. It's almost denuded. The other type, which I think is a maypop has tons of caterpillars on it, but still has lots of greenery.
I'm beginning to get concerned about my CE. There are almost no leaves left. It seems like every stem has a caterpillar on it. When this plant was young, I kept the caterpillars picked off it. After it got big, I quit worrying about it.
Now, I'm worried. I would hate to lose it. I would also hate to have to pick off all those caterpillars.
