First time I've ever spotted an orange Asclepias in the wild! What an exciting moment! This adorable patch was found in wildlife management area, AL near FL border yesterday. A. tuberosa? I hesitate because I thought that had yellow centers in the flowers. Is that variable? If not A. tuberosa, who do you think she is? TIA!

Sure looks like A. tuberosa to me.
Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.

I certainly agree. Flowers can be orange a/o yellow.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.
