I have a tiny farmhouse in rural PA w/ lots of fields & forest... I enjoy being surrounded by as many plants as possible, both outdoors & in my home!

Looks like asclépias. It's milk weed, essential for the monarch butterfly caterpillars 🐛. I leave mine so they feed the monarchs. The flowers are also wonderfully fragrant.

Is this a type of milkweed maybe?

@petersburghomesteader @KariSamuel @treefrog44 does this look like it could be a type of milkweed? Or do you know what it is?

Looks like it could be milkweed, break off a piece of leaf or stem, if a white milky liquid comes out, yep its milkweed :)

@columbiariver @treefrog44 It might be... I've never seen them this tall before, but you're probably right! I'll go break off a piece & find out for sure 🙂
