Got Milk - weed?

We all know that the Milkweed Family of plants is necessary for survival of the the Monarch Butterfly.  The ample blossoms of the common milkweed also supply nectar to this Hummingbird Clearwing Moth and  Ruby Throated Hummingbirds are frequently seen sipping from the blossoms of milkweed in the Fox Island Butterfly Garden.
