This volunteer came up in my front flower bed. I was sure it was milkweed based on the leaf shape and similarity to milkweed in my back flower beds. Then it developed this pink flower. That was a surprise because all the other milkweed flowers I have are orange and/or red with individual blooms much smaller. So I thought it was time to send it to Walter and Co. I might add that I have been growing regular milkweed for several years, but no monarch caterpillars for last 2 years.
