Asclepias Fruticosa

Asclepias Fruticosa

Asclepias, the milkweeds, is a genus of herbaceous perennial, dicotyledonous plants that contains over 140 known species. Milkweed is named for its milky juice, which contains alkaloids, latex, and several other complex compounds including cardenolides. 

Carl Linnaeus named the genus after Asclepius, the Greek god of healing, because of the many folk-medicinal uses for the milkweed plants.
