I love the look and feel of Milkweeds. I remember as a kid there use to be a bunch of Milkweeds near our house. We use to open them up and throw them at each other. Or maybe it was the briars we threw at each other. It was most unfortunate for me since I had curly hair and it was very difficult and painful to get them out of my hair!
Milkweed is also good food for Monarch butterflies!
