Looks like one to me, but I'm not familiar with enough of them to know which one.

Looks like A. syriaca to me. Common milkweed.

Yes, perhaps of the Syriaca type. Monarch butterflies are no joke and you have to protect them. So just leave it there for the environment!

Yes, Common Milkweed /Asclepias syriaca
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks, guys. I thought it might be. It's funny because this is an undeveloped property we own for camping use, and we talked about planting a bunch of milkweed, but just realized it's already everywhere.

Fantastic!! Is that what is in the background also? It looks like nature has developed it beautifully. I hope you don't do much "remodeling."

I think A. incarnata and tuberosa will also grow in your zone/location, assuming this property is in the same zone as your profile indication.

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The 2nd best time is now.
