|I think I have two different varieties of milkweed growing in my yard. (And in my herb garden where it should NOT be growing but it doesn't seem to care what I think.)
Can anyone tell me if these are indeed two types or just one? I think one is swamp milkweed - maybe the one with the pointier thinner leaves? I think the one flowering now is maybe common milkweed.
Do you know if you can cook and eat the shoots for swamp milkweed the same way you can common?
