I found this plant in the park in NC, I hope someone can help me to ID this. The flower is softer than hoya, but it is so beautiful. Thanks

What a beautiful flower Sue.
There are many beautiful Asclepias species that can be grown in the garden in the U.S and Canada. I have grown three or four species potted but I eventually loose the hardy species during their dormancy after several years. The scent from some milkweeds is just as nice as many Hoyas.

Here are a few of my plants.

Asclepias viridis

Asclepias curissavica

Asclepias tuberosa
