Diane R. Wallace: Knows milkweed from upstate New York Days
About: Wildflowers of KY: ID ??? anyone ???
Diane R Wallace writes:
This plant is indigenous in Upstate New York where I was born and raised. I was not aware of the butterfly nor honey bee attraction. I recognized it immediately from gathering them as a child. Another green equal in proliferation with dandelion and cowslips. Milkweed is a little sweeter than the rest, but either way, raw or cooked they are gross but cheap. - Diane R. Wallace --Diane R WallaceThanks Diane Wallace: For this information. Milkweed, like many 'edibles' this one is mildly toxic unless gathered in its budding stage and strict protocols are followed in preparation. And in this day of road departments' use of herbicides, there's a danger to whatever degree from that assault on the the beauty of Kentucky and our environment. - EW
