I was excited to find this plant in bloom in the Jefferson Middle School Cedar Barrens. I'm so glad that area was saved from development several years ago! This "biological goldmine" was in danger of becoming a shopping mall! Unlike other Milkweeds, the flowers of the Green Milkweed does not have the "horns", little points that protrude from the hoods.
