Monarchs

Zone 7a | co692op added on October 16, 2019 | Answered

I live in zone 7 and I have several monarch butterfly chrysalises attached to plants. They probably will not survive the winter here and they've been hanging for several weeks. Should I assume that they are no longer viable?

    They will commonly overwinter just fine in zone 7. This link will help you to add extra protection to an overwintering chrysalis: https://www.joyfulbutterfly.com/overwinter-chrysalis/
