Related to Milkweed

This is a domesticated variety of milkweed called Ice Ballet,

while these brighter flowers are more distantly related, and are better known as butterflyweed.

These are too pretty to be called 'weeds'.

I have to confess that I love butterflyweed. I have it in four places in my gardens and it's blooming now! I've never seen the white though. Very nice photos!

Neat. I never knew the two were related. Learn something new every day, I suppose
