Milkweeds and Their Natural Plant Communities
|Dates:||July 12, 2019|
|Meets:||F from 10 AM to 12 N|
|Location:||Main House Lecture Room 2|
Milkweeds, host plants to the famous monarch butterfly, support a variety of insects, making them power players in pollinator meadows. Rochelle and Becky, native plant specialists with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, have studied the natural community structure of meadows, where they have documented several milkweed species and the plants typically associated with them. Learn how to mimic those plant communities in home gardens and how to propagate milkweeds on your own. A walk through Mt. Cuba Center's meadow highlights milkweed species suitable for your garden.
