It DOES host Monarchs! (10/11/2022)
Talayote despite what others here are claiming, does in fact host Monarch caterpillars! I have many pictures of them Monarch eggs and cats on them along with other species such as the Queen butterfly. It is also NOT from Europe and is native to Texas and Northern Mexico....just look it up on the wildflower.org website!

Hi Lara,
I'm not sure who or where they suggest that it doesn't host Monarchs, Queens, and Soldier butterflies as we know that it does in fact do so. But we will add that to the description to make sure that other folks are aware and thank you for pointing that out!

Research Study (8/9/2020)
See the 2005 research study by the University of Kentucky, which concludes that Cynanchum Laeve and Asclepias Syriaca are both suitable host plants for monarch larvae. The conclusion probably extends to the also native Cynanchum Racemosum(Talayote). It appears that Cynanchums from Europe do not support monarch larvae.
