Common milkweed excels at providing habitat all year long. In the summer the common milkweed #asclepiassyriaca staggers its blooms as they go up. Lower blooms open first and upper blooms open last. Bees, ants and butterflies use the plant all summer long. Birds will use the coma from the follicles to build nests. Bees nest in the hollow stems over the winter. Untold insects use this plant as habitat. #valenciafilter
