    You see, I learned something already. Out here milkweed is just that, a weed. I like it!!
    I'm with Eileen, I love red and yellow together!
    I try to plant big groups of red and yellow tulips together. You can NEVER have too many tulips!

    Mine returns year after year, no matter if the caterpillars eat it down to a nub. I do love them.
