Monarch to be enjoying the Swamp Milkweed !

Swamp milkweed loves wet soil and sun. Not sure if it’s native or not, but some sort of milkweed would be important for attracting monarch butterflies. I did follow the sun on the side yard today. Direct sun hit around 12:30pm and became indirect around 3-3:30pm. OK, THANKS. Milkweed needs more sun than that, but I am using other plants for butterflies and bees.
