MONARCH BUTTERFLY - A female Monarch Butterfly lays eggs on the cultivar Asclepias in Vic's pollinator garden. The plant is the garden version of wild Milkweed which Monarchs lay their eggs on. The eggs take 3-15 days to hatch into larvae. The larvae (caterpillars) feed on the milkweed for about two weeks before they shed their outer skin and change into a chrysalis and then a full-grown Monarch.
