October 21, 2022October 21, 2022 Pamela Breitberg The other winged seed head… The leaves give away the species of this burst Milkweed seed head. The long slender leaves are quite different from the thick rounded leaves of the more popular Milkweed variety. Still having the fluffy little winged seeds (remember the Disney Fantasia movie?!) this seedhead belongs to the Butterfly Weed. Butterfly Weed is an equal favorite of the Monarch butterfly and a native to much of the U.S. Include it in your butterfly garden!

The butterflies do love the milkweed blooms. And it is amazing how prolific they are when those seedpods burst open.
Just amazing to watch them burst and the seeds fly through the air!
I love it.
