Thank you, Ellen.

Congratulations on yours as well. At least you know that you are in the range if the zebra swallowtails. I hope you get them in the years to come.

Thanks, wildwatcher, I will try to get them I the ground soon. As far as I know, as long as the ground hasn't frozen, tree roots do keep growing.

I've seen one ZST in my yard and that was 2005. Guy across the street with big pawpaws says he has seen them more often.

I have found ZSTs to be locally common when pawpaw is common and widespread.

Thank you for the feedback, KC Clark.

I guess, unless there are plenty of paw paw somewhat nearby, I may not be hosting any in my yard.
