Monarch and BuddleiaAsclepias - Milkweeds - are the ONLY host plants for the Monarch Butterfly.  Butterflies can get Nectar from many plants but the the young caterpillars only eat Asclepias so-o-o-o-o, if you want Monarchs, it's great to buy Buddleias, etc. BUT you will never have Monarchs in quantity unless you plant Milkweeds for the 'Baby Butterflies'!  The female Butterflies prefer some Asclepias species over others (especially A. incarnata and A. incarnata 'Ice Ballet') but can use any Asclepias when necessary.  Asclepias are also Host plants for Queen and Soldier Butterflies.

"I have praised astilbe many times, and I must again - it is such a tremendous perennial. I'll always remember the day the well known British garden author, Christopher Lloyd, came to visit. He let me know in no uncertain terms that he wouldn't have astilbe in his garden. He simply did not care for it. After seeing how we were using these wonderful plants at Minter Gardens, he rather brusquely stated that perhaps it wouldn't hurt to take a second look. Astilbe can carry your garden from June until September if you carefully select the varieties which bloom in sequence. Astilbes can be tall or short to suit most locations, however, they last best in partial shade," Brian Minter.

Our note:  If you will read below, there are Astilbes that bloom in months 6-7, 7-8 and finally Astilbe chinensis that blooms months 8-9.  Keep in mind, they are extra heavy feeders and need double the fertilizer and to be divided about every 3 years.  Attracts Hummingbirds Hummingbird plant in some areas.

"The arendsii hybrids are a large group of hybrids involving crosses between A. chinensis, A. japonica, A. thunbergii and A. astilboides and are named after German nurseryman George Arends (1862-1952). Because of the different and sometimes complex parentage of the plants lumped under this hybrid grouping, arendsii hybrids can vary considerably as to plant size, inflorescence shape, leaf color/shape and bloom period. Generally, however, they are early bloomers (late spring in St. Louis) which grow 1.5 to 4’ tall with ovate to lance-shaped leaflets." Kemper Center for Home Gardening.
