Re: Found a very weird looking moth


I would have to plant grapes, hibiscus, evening primrose or virginia creeper. I'm almost certain that I've seen virginia creeper near the creek that divides our housing complex.

You should be able to transplant some of the Virgina creeper, and hibiscus would look lovely in your garden if you should plant some... emoticon

Re: Found a very weird looking moth


I'd have to look up some info on Hibiscus to see if it would survive okay here. I seem to recall reading that Hummingbirds like them too so there would be a double benefit.

Well it would make sense, they do kind of have a deep nectar center. I hope they do work out there. Pretty cool flowers all the way around!

Re: Found a very weird looking moth


Hibiscus are vulnerable to a large number of pests and plant diseases from what I've read. I'll have to ask some questions at one of my garden centers before I consider adding any. I know that the gardens in Dallas where the butterfly house is has Hibiscus. Maybe I might get a chance to ask there as well.

The Hibiscus almost grew wild in Corpus Christi at the campground we stayed at and again in San Diego, they had tons of them.....
I hope that you are able to grow them.. emoticon

I figure that during the first part of next month I'll start checking the local garden centers to see what they have and what advice they can give.

Best way to do plants. Local nursery's. That's what I'm going to do up here.

Re: Found a very weird looking moth


I have another good reason to start haunting the nurseries. We have no sign of any milkweed here yet and the Monarchs are starting their migration. If I have to buy some mature plants and put them in I'll do it. Can't have those expectant mothers finding no place to lay eggs.

OH DEAR!! emoticon I hope you found some milkweed!
Do they normally migrate this early?
