Asclepias syriaca, called Common Milkweed, butterfly flower, and silkweed is an herbaceous plant species that used to be more common along roadsides and in successional fields. This species is native to most of North America and is one of the primary foods for the monarch butterfly. It can be quite robust and will colonize local areas in which it is established, through rhizomes that expand each year. Deer and ground hogs will also eat the young foliage.

Delicately fragrant.
