Notes:

I found this growing not far from the penstemon cobaea. I should have taken a close-up of the leaves: They have an intricate network of fine veins with one vein running around the perimeter of the leaf about 1/8 in. from the edge. The top of this particular plant may have been damaged by herbivory. There was one other in the vicinity with the top completely gone.

    Milkweed…. Yay, monarchs! I have deer and rabbits… And voles decimating my monarch beds too. Not much we can do… Unless we put up a fence to protect from deer… Milkweeds can be transplanted when small… Attempting to transplant while in bloom will kill the plant. Best to just collect the seed after the pod splits open… http://www.stonethegardener.com/wp/2012/07/monarch-butterflies/
