The monarchs are coming! What should I do?
Plant fall-blooming nectar flowers! Migrating monarch butterflies have begun arriving in Texas. These butterflies are seeking nectar to fuel their flight to Mexico and to sustain them over the winter. You may be growing some nectar-rich flowers, but plant more, especially those blooming now to the first frost. Find them at nurseries offering native flowers, or come to the Native Plant Society of Texas Plant Sale September 30 or the Fort Worth Botanic Garden Plant Sale October 6 & 7. Here are a few to look out for. The monarchs will thank you!
