  1. I bet the wildlife is going nuts over your buffet! If you don't mind - where did you find your Asclepia speciosa? I've been looking all spring... Thanks!

    1. Oddly enough, I don't recall. I bought it in 2010 and suspect it might have been an Annie's Annuals plant that I picked up at Portland Nursery. If you can't find one - I know there is one seedling growing, we might be able to dig out (it came up through the middle of another plant). Or I can give some seeds in the fall.
