… and I have been wrong some more. Apparently you can also eat Milkweed pods…. sometimes (when green)!
WARNING…. DANGER… milk sap is poisonous!!
So this wonderful plant feeds Monarch Butterflies exclusively. Milkweed is the only thing they eat, so it is really important that we don’t destroy milkweed habitat, pull it as you might pull a weed, or consume it as human food.
