Antelope Horn Milkweed
The Green Antelope Horn Milkweed — Asclepias viridis — is so named for its elongated fruit (top right corner of the image).
In Texas, the seeds of this Milkweed emerge in July. This year, we have a second crop of seeds just about mature. The fluffy white threads with seeds easily become wind-borne to carry this plant to new locations and ensure another crop for next year.
The Monarchs find this plant welcoming them on the migratory journey South, through Texas.
