Flower ID?

  1. Found this during my wanderings this weekend


    anyone have a clue?
  2. It's one of the Milkweeds (Asclepias). If those are the leaves of the plant in the background, it might be swamp milkweed. Monarch butterfly caterpillars feed on milkweed.

  3. Thanks Larry - you're right it does appear to be Swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata)

    thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
