Invasive Species we have come to know very well


Monarch Butterfly larvae can only survive on the Milkweed family of plants. This includes Common Milkweed, Butterfly Milkweed and Swamp Milkweed, all found in High Park. DSV aka Pale Swallow-wort is similar in structure (see the pods) but when Monarch mistakenly lay eggs on them, the larvae die when they eat it. DSV is a major concern as it is extremely aggressive and will grow back multiple plants if some of the root is left behind when pulled.
