    I have two grand-daughters I’d like to read this to. One is 11 and she is interested in helping me with my online seed business. I sell quite a few Asclepias, also Gomphocarpus and Tweedias. I sell flower seeds from many places in the U.S.A., kind of a joint venture with several other home growers. I have a butterfly garden and get monarchs and other butterflies yearly. The other grand-daughter is 6 years old and a little scared of insects. I would like to share with her the joys of nature, especially butterflies and bugs. Both of these kids love to read, the little one is just starting to learn and it is clear she will be a good reader. In these times where there so much entertainment for kids inside we need to inspire them to go outside and explore nature.

    Thought I’d send an update on my milkweeds. I have both gomphocarpus, blue tweedia, California narrow-leaf and yellow and orange curassavica. After two years of searching for seeds, I finally have a pink tweedia growing. I plan on starting several more plants this coming year and then they will go one sale on my new seedsite RobinSeeds. We sell exclusively in the U.S.A., but I would make an exception for my friends in New Zealand. Check out the seeds at ETSY and if you wish to buy or trade I can be contacted at dee@robinseeds.com
    I can’t tell you how excited I am about the Tweedia solanoides, the one plant I have did give me one seed pod, about 45 seeds, yahoo! Some I will be re-gifting to Jonna Sudenius, in Denmark?, who sent me the “old” tweedia seeds.
    P.S. I overwintered both the gomphocarpus by cutting them to the ground, you might want to try it, beats starting from seed every year.
    Have a great gardening year! Dee

    I just re-found you. I would love as many Tweedia solanoides as you can share with me. I’d like to grow them for seed production. I have yellow Asclepias curassavica, Gomphocarpus fruticosus, and Tweedia caerulea that I have grown and I can get any of the seeds on the SMARTSEEDS website for you. My address is:
    Dee Moore
    439 Corralitos Road

    I have checked the “follow-up replies” box this time, LOL.
