It's a poor photo but it has a white milky substance when you break it. Anybody know? Thanks

Well thank you!! . It doesn't look like the tuberosa I have in my garden. Can you be more specific as to the type?

Asclepias latifolia is as close as I can get. It's got no business being where you live though.

Here is a link that might be useful: Asclepias latifolia

Common milkweed is highly variable IME. The plant in the picture falls within the range of leaf shapes I've seen.

I think it is more likely common milkweed. There are so many kinds. Thank you for your help
