milkweed plants native to the USA.
Milkweed is a genus of plant that is found across the globe. The plants found here don't require that you travel to Africa to see. You don't need to put sunblock on and go to the tropics for tropical milkweed. If you live in North America then look around in your own backyard for these native milkweeds. Some are common while others are very rare. Some thrive in any soil while others require specific minerals be present.
Like pictures? So do I!
Lets take a look at a photo that represents each milkweed. Unfortunately not all milkweeds have photographs available or the photographs restrict their use.
