What a funny name for such a beautiful flower!
Well, I wouldn’t call it funny, exactly. The name milkweed is actually quite accurate. When the stem is broken, a fluid somewhat like latex and very sticky flows out. It’s like milk.

They are beautiful and I enjoy watching them bloom! There are a few different types of milkweed that grow around here, although I did not realize that until recently! The origin of names is fascinating. (Thanks for the info, Jessie!) I am happy to just enjoy nature too! Thank you both so much for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it!
