While my yard is not an official Monarch Way station…the basil and zinnia bed certainly qualifies for a butterfly garden. Zinnias are on the list for nectar plants adult Monarchs love and I can say first hand they do! Easy to grow from seed and really hearty in the hot hot sun. I wonder if it’s too late for another good crop? I think I’ll plant a couple of flats in the front tomorrow and see how it goes. Couldn’t hurt!
