Butterfly Milkweed

2 replies »

  1. This is a type of milkweed. The most common, at least where I live, has purple flowers. I know that you can eat the buds before they open on regular milkweed, but I wasn’t sure of these because of their bright coloring, which to me usually signals danger. I guess they are ok to eat, the color is to attract butterflies, so I might be tempted to gather some next time I am out.
