    • Yes. They are the primary host plant for the Monarch caterpillar and have received much attention in recent years – e.g. citizen planting programs as part of a national effort to improve habitat and perhaps save the Monarch. This is the main reason I photographed and blogged milkweed this fall. It was on my mind and I wanted to contribute to the effort by showing the plant in a natural habitat setting.

That confirms my suspicion that it isn’t common in western Oregon, but I did find some near our eastern border just this side of Idaho.
