Host plant for the Monarch butterfly. Nice one! I think it might be Asclepias asperula, sometimes called "antelope horns."

Asclepias asperula, sometimes called "antelope horns."

As usual ken is spouting off about something he has no experience with. Antelope Horns has rather exacting requirements and many bemoan the fact it won't grow in their native landscapes.
