Milkweed – when aphids are a good thing!
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
