Asclepias curassavica - Butterfly Milkweed
This is a variety from Central and South America that grows readily here with almost no care or irrigation. Bright yellow and red flowers look like lantana blossoms. This is one of the plants to grow if you want Monarch butterflies in your garden. The seeds do float around and germinate readily, but I have no trouble finding people who want my extra seedlings.
