the other Milkweed

This is the more common milkweed I have here and this one can grow up to 2 m tall! thank you for the many thoughtful comments on my photos, much appreciated
Is it a prolific plant in your area ?

These are very pretty! I’d have guessed it was an orchid it you had not told me it is milkweed!

@hermann sure is and the monarch therefore is prolific here too because it is their natural host plant :) my professional bush regenerators that work on my property do not touch this 'weed' by my request :)

@kchuk each flower is tiny, the tip of a finger. for years I never realised how exquisite each tiny flower is!

Great shot. Never would have thought a milkweed would look like that.

I'll have to pay closer attention to these plants, I've noticed the "swan like" seed pods but not the flowers :)

Ah yes, this is the one I recognise. Lovely, you're going to have a lot of butterflies.
