Butterfly Weed

Asclepias tuberosa

Seed pods are similar to milkweed except narrower and vertical. Seeds are almost identical. Leaves are alternate and heavily textured, unlike the Swamp Milkweed. This is the only Milkweed that has colourless juice. I have never seen a Monarch or any other butterfly pupa on this plant. A native North America plant.
