365 ~ 116 ~ Pretty Weed

Butterfly weed is so pretty, I almost hate to call it a weed. 

It freely seeds itself throught the garden and when I find a plant growing where I don't want it, I simply dig it up and move it to the butterfly "area".  It grows tall, over 2 feet and looks pretty in a flower garden.

Caterpillars LOVE it and will eat it to a stub, but it always comes back...God has created it to do exactly what it should.

  1. Way too pretty to be called a weed. Wildflower is more apt.

  2. That is really pretty - I think I'd just call it a flower rather than a weed! :)

  3. Yep, I agree, it's way to pretty to be a weed.

  4. does it feed anything you like? If it does I make 'em wildflowers and leave it. So we have things butterflies lay eggs on and feed from.
