Tropical Milkweed Seeds & OBS Eclosed Today!

I am harvesting a ton of Red Tropcial Milkweed seeds if anyone needs some...we can either trade(check my list out) or send me a SASBE!!! The small paintbrush technique for pollinating worked like a charm!
QUESTION...Will leaving some of the seeds on the plants during a freeze ruin them?
I also had 3 Orange Barred Sulphurs that pupated several weeks ago & with our warm temps we're having(highs in the upper 70s) this week before our first freeze tomorrow night, one eclosed!
:o( SO SAD!!!

Wowza, that is a stunning pic there birdnut!!! I love that one, and may just need it for my screensaver! I would take just a little of that Tropical MW seed if you have not already sent out my seeds. If you have, then don't worry about it.~~Angie
