This is a common milkweed
Weeds have a lot to offer the local garden inhabitants
This weed is host to the monarch butterfly
The nectar feeds many
The fluff is great for the birds
Collect it in the fall and in the spring put it out for nesting material.
The baskets used for suit are great nesting material holders in the spring
