Milkweed Galaxy

Monarch butterflies only lay their eggs on milkweed, which is the only thing monarch caterpillars eat! In addition to providing nutrients, the plants contains toxins that monarchs ingest, making them poisonous to predators. This mural, called Milkweed Galaxy, features swamp milkweed and serves as a reminder that these microhabitats—so easy for us humans to overlook—are wonderful worlds in themselves. It can be found at Full Sail University on 3500 University Blvd, Winter Park, Florida.
