Wand Milkweed Flowers 0685

I’ve always known Asclepias viridiflora as wand milkweed, but I was recently reminded that some people call it green comet milkweed. By whatever name, the plant’s hemispheres of flowers are distinctive. I found this one on July 7th along W. Courtyard Dr., a place where I don’t remember ever taking pictures before.

In this view you get to see both flowers and buds, plus an ant.
