Wow! I saw only three yesterday but today there's about 9 of them on my Lantanas and Liatris. A neighborhood cat was out there batting at them, trying to catch one and I ran him off. I've never seen that before. I have 3 Butterfly Bushes but the butterflies have almost completely ignored them in favor of the Lantanas. Up the street there's some gorgeous Agastache cana and I must have seen 15 or more monarchs on just three large plants. Spring was dismal but fall has been a bumper year for Monarchs, various Swallowtails, Sulfurs, Fritillari, Hummingbird Moths, skippers and some I have no idea what they are.
Next year I am buying Agastache cana!
Is anyone else suddenly seeing lots of monarchs?
