Monarch Gardening in South Florida by Teri Jabour. Teri is a long-time UF/IFAS Extension Service Master Gardener Volunteer and president of the North American Butterfly Association (NABA) - Atala Chapter. Gardening for Monarch butterflies in South Florida is unique compared to other regions of Florida and the U.S. It can be a challenging endeavor as well as most rewarding! Since our Monarch butterflies are both residents and migratory, there are specific things to consider in planting their host plants, milkweeds, and providing nectar plants all seasons of the year. The prevalence of (OE), a protozoan parasite, also means certain practices are important to minimize the disease in our South Florida Monarch population. She will discuss recent studies about Monarchs and how to establish and maintain a garden that supports Monarch butterflies, all year.
