Common Milkweed

Common Milkweed, Asclepias syriaca
Many stands of Common Milkweed are seen throughout this area providing vital nourishment for the Monarch Butterfly as it begins its arduous and danger-filled journey to Mexico. These plants were photographed on the bank of the Conestogo River in Waterloo, ON on 20 August 2011.
