Milkweeds and Their Natural Plant Communities at Mt. Cuba Center
Friday, July 12, 2019
10 am – 12 pm
with Rochelle Bartolomei and Becky Melzer

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.
