This weed, known by the common name of "milkweed" and sometimes hated, is however an extraordinary plant that deserves to be preserved: not only it is the favourite food of the beautiful monarch butterfly, it produces a milky sap that contains latex but its silky fiber can also be used to make cloth (sold under the brand name of “Monark”).
