Here are some other native Texas milkweeds:

Asclepias incarnata – also called Swamp Milkweed

  I have mentioned this in my blog before, but just bought another to put in the pond in a pot next to the Buttonbush. This one has beautiful pink blooms

Asclepias tuberosa: also called Pleurisy Root or Butterfly Milkweed





Antelope Horn Milkweed
