Asclepias syriaca is an excellent wild forage plant known also to attract Butterflies. A stout plant with large leaves, large pink flower clusters. This milkweed is edible when cooked. The boiled young shoots, leaves, unopened flowerbuds, flowers, and young pods are said to be good as asparagus, cooked greens, cooked vegetables, and fritters. The key is to learn just when they right time is to harvest.
It is a good choice for sunny flower beds, very attractive and easily controlled, but becomes weedy in farmers fields. Grows in sandy, clayey, or rocky calcareous soils up 4-6' ft. Zone 4-9.

Othernames: Virginia-silk, Algodoncillo, Silky Swallowwort, herbe à la ouate, Seidenpflanze, Common Milkweed, Banana Leaf Milkweed, Tall Milkweed.
