Wow, Milkweed Grows Fast!

Here’s one of the milkweed plants I transplanted just a week ago. I really am surprised at how fast it’s growing. Which made me think that perhaps I should learn a little more about this plant. I did a quick search online and found out that one of the types I planted, common milkweed, is known to be pretty aggressive. (Some types are not, apparently.) I don’t think it can get too out of control in the space I have it in though — in flower beds, separate from the rest of the garden. I’m also interested in putting in more butterfly friendly plants, so I’m looking forward to seeing how this one does.
