I have it popping up all over my yard! It is about 3 feet tall right now. Thanks
Asclepias sp., I believe.
It looks like the leaves are alternate, not opposite. If you pull a leaf off, does it ooze a milky sap?
i though milkweed also ... but hesitated on the whole tx thing ...
i am wondering what all the black spots are.. and if the butterflies have already hatched on it .. if it is mweed ...
but last year.. i had a horrible aphid infestation.. to the point that i never saw the monarchs on them ... perhaps the ants protecting their colony of aphids .....
Yes,it has sap. I have pulled this one after taking the picture. Not sure about the black thing. I am not sure if it has flower either.
Here is the shot from top.
