A Weed by any other Name is a Wildflower...
Showy Milkweed is very attractive to butterflies, especially Monarchs. They see the beauty in a plant we simply think of as a weed. Seeing the wildflower in bloom makes it easier to appreciate its beauty.
Advice for nature photographers: don't overlook the plants at your feet even if they appear to be weeds. Even without flowers, their seed pods sometimes make great subjects to photograph.
