Milkweed ID please?

mrs.b_in_wy(5a WY)August 10, 2014

I ordered this as Asclepias tuberosa 'Hello Yellow' from Michigan Bulb this spring. Since the blooms are white instead of yellow, I'm wondering if there was a mix-up. Has anyone seen or heard of 'Hello Yellow' being white. Or maybe this is A. incarnata>? The pink ones in our yard are still a few days away from their blossoms opening up, and this white milkweed has seed pods forming.

Thanks so much!

It looks like a white incarnata to me..but I'm not certain.

Asclepias tuberosa has clear sap. The others have milky sap.

Many thanks for the helpful replies. I broke a leaf off and got milky sap.
