Purple milkweed, Asclepias purpurascens

Milkweeds are a personal favorite. The arcitecture of the flowers is unique. I wonder if they don't get the attention they merit just because we call them weeds. This one grows in woods and edges in AR, CT(S), DE GA IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA(E), MD, ME, MI(SC), MN, MO, MS, NE, NH(T), NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI(T), TN(S), TX, VA, WI(E), WV, and ON.
