Butterfly Milkweed (Orange)

Categories ,

Because Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) is the only milkweed in Illinois that has orange flowers, it is easy to identify. This species is also unusual for a milkweed because its leaves are alternate and its foliage lacks a milky latex. Because of the absence of milky latex, it is often referred to as Butterfly Weed, rather than Butterfly Milkweed. The thick and bitter-tasting roots were used for various medicinal purposes in the past, including the treatment of pleurisy. As a result, another common name for this species is Pleurisy Root.

    As part of our Annual Congregational Meeting, our Youth and their Parents will host a Pancake Breakfast as part of their efforts to raise funds for their long distance 2020 work trip to the US Island of Puerto Rico.

    Everyone’s invited to our Annual Congregational meeting and a delicious pancake breakfast. Come join us to reflect on last year’s ministries and accomplishments. We will also be reviewing and acting on our 2019 budget.

    The free will offering for the breakfast will benefit our 2020 long distance work trip.
