Historic Viaduct Footings: Milkweed Blooming

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 16, 2015.  This may be native Kotolo Milkweed blooming among the City of LA Historic Landmark Pacific Electric Viaduct Footings.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)
Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 16, 2015.  Usually, we see a pink variety of Kotolo Milkweed blooming up above the viaduct footings.  This is the first time in the 25 years I've walked the property, I'd never seen the yellow variety.

Native milkweed is vital for butterfly species as a larval foodplant.
