Hello. If you have read either of my recent posts about the wildflower
Sweet Everlasting, you know that I am concerned that this plant seems to be
missing all of a sudden in Norfolk Co. It is a primary food source for
American Lady caterpillars. Recent articles in "Butterfly Conservation" and
other publications point to the disappearance of larval food plants as a
major reason for butterfly decline, which, of course, makes sense. I would
say we all need to monitor, one way or another, at least some of the major
butterfly caterpillar food plants. There are countless sources for looking
up names and images of larval food plants.
Let's do our part and share information, good or not so good, about the
plants that keep our butterflies alive.

Brian Cassie, somewhere in Norfolk County
