Q.Tips for a milkweed monarch butterfly garden

Zone 27587 | Anonymous added on September 23, 2020 | Answered

Hello, I am a beginner gardener and I am planting a monarch butterfly garden for a nearby school. I was wondering if you had any tips for growing and maintaining milkweeds in the springtime. I live in a zone 7/8 area so I am not sure what types of milkweeds I should get. I was also wondering if you had any suggested plants that I should add to my garden to ensure its efficiency. Thank you for your time!
