Used by many tribes for making everything from rope to cloth to medicine this beautiful milkweed has a very interesting ethnobotanical history. Though once common, it was targeted for eradication because of it's perceived toxicity to livestock. This same toxicity is critical for the survival of monarch butterflies, it is now clear that the survival of both species are tied together. Share in the history & future by planting these seeds today. Found in high plains of Texas north to Canada and west to California.
