Waiting for Zebras

Earlier in the Spring, Zebra Swallowtails visited during a few warm spells. They have an open invitation to visit any time.

Their host plant, Asimina auguxtafolia, is blooming at the edge of the Upper Garden anong Lantana montevidensis. Yellow Lantana is starting to bloom adjacent.

Later in the summer, Zebras will visit Tithonia and Pride of Barbados, but their first stop is usually Lantana.

Tigers are already back; the Zoo awaits Zebras. I'l be waiting among Lilies and Daylilies at the other end of the path.


  1. The lilies are looking fantastic, as are the other plants. Hope your spring continues to bloom.

  2. Nell, I love that shady path with the hydrangea and lilies. My oak leaf will bloom for the first time this year and it is just about 2 feet tall.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
