Monarch Butterfly and Milkweed

Asked March 23, 2015, 12:51 AM EDT

There has been some recent activity on Facebook regarding saving the monarch by planting milkweed everywhere. Of course following that, there have been the debates over local milkweed, invasive milkweed, poisonous/dangerous to monarchs milkweed. . . Would you be able to set the story straight regarding this issue, particularly the question of the correct milkweed to plant? Thank you.
