Milkweeds in the Florida scrub

Found a beautiful Curtiss' Milkweed on the land next to our house today. Asclepias curtissii is endangered so we are very happy to have it growing there. It is also endemic, meaning it only grows in Florida. I will keep an eye on it to see if any monarch or queen butterflies are living there!
