Milkweed, butterfly weed or “butterfly plant,” the preferred moniker seems to be “butterfly flower.” The rationale appears to be that, if people are being asked to pay money for something, it doesn’t seem prudent to market it as a weed. Yet as a type of milkweed, that’s precisely what it is — and the butterflies won’t mind a bit. In fact, they’re rather partial to weeds.
