I had no idea they were found outside the Americas.

from wiki:
In the Americas, the monarch ranges from southern Canada through northern South America.[4] It has also been found in Bermuda, Cook Islands,[34] Hawaii,[35][36] Cuba,[37] and other Caribbean islands[10]p18) the Solomons, New Caledonia, New Zealand,[38] Papua New Guinea,[39] Australia, the Azores, the Canary Islands, Madeira, Gibraltar,[40] the Philippines, and North Africa.[41] It appears in the UK in some years as an accidental migrant.[42]

I don't think I'll be investing in one of Subrosa's water snowball plants - anywhere less like a swamp/wetland is hard to imagine in my location!

My Monarchs are partial to the nectar of Rosemary (horizontalis, not ordinary!) and of bottlebrush.

And in online sources ------- the Monarch also has a synonym name of milkweed butterfly. So milkweed is very closely tied to Monarch butterflies.

True! The Monarch did make it out to Australia after being introduced from USA maybe towards the late 1800's. No complaints about it hehehe

My Milkweeds, both orange and yellow flowered, opened a new crop of blooms today and a female butterfly was right there, sipping nectar in the morning and laying eggs in the afternoon. If all goes to normal timescales I should have more butterflies ready to take to the skies at Christmas!
