American Lady Pupa

Some of the American Ladies have now pupated. I kept them in a basket with netting to cage them in. This one pupated on the basket handle. I have read that this species can overwinter as a pupa or an adult. I hope it emerges soon so I can get a good picture.

I also read that the caterpillars eat Edelweiss. I wonder if I could grow that in my garden. Apparently it grows in Castro Valley, not too far away.  Maybe I should try it.
