Welcome to Pollinator Pulse! Today we are going to explore the Silk Milkweed.

The common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) is one of the best known wild plants in North America. Children love to play with the white fluffy top in autumn and butterfly enthusiasts love to plant milkweed to attract and feed monarchs. This exceptional and elegant plant has fragrant, and beautiful multi-colored blossoms in midsummer and is a favorite at Green Seasons.
Fun Fact: During World War II, American schoolchildren collected milkweed floss to fill life preservers for the armed forces.
