Photo Guide : Index

Each milkweed page indexed below includes a brief description of the species' range and characteristics as well as thumbnail and full-size images of its leaves, flowers and entire plant. Remember, there are more than 100 species of milkweed, so we need your help in building this guide. If you have access to photos of species not listed here or of those with incomplete or poor image collections, we would love to add your photos and credit your contribution. Just contact us and we'll figure out the easiest way to get your photos online.

Thanks!
