I went to a garden center yesterday and there were monarchs all around their display too! Mostly echinacea, rudbeckia and heliopsis. Bizarre seeing all the butterflies around a garden of containerized plants for resale in a parking lot at the edge of a busy road.

Toadshade Nursery in Frenchtown had poke milkweed. I don't see it on their website now but maybe a phone call might get you somewhere.
Thanks I will check them out, I am going out that way in a couple weeks anyway.

Awesome, Jack! It is a great feeling.

Wonderful description.
