This coin landed in my hand after doing what I love to do ... show people around the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Botanical Garden in Las Vegas.

Our Speciosa, Erosa and Subulata are the show show-stoppers but thanks to Master Gardener Anne Marie Lardeau, you will find a wide variety of milkweeds and nectar plants growing in our desert, beckoning butterflies to come down and hang out.

When you come to Vegas, take a break from the strip and come see us! It is a 15 minute drive from the strip. And please invite your butterfly friends!
