I found two of these seeds, one I caught will flying and the other in my flower garden. It looks like a bigger version of A. Tuberosa.

The one on the left is A. Tuberosa and the other is what I found.

This is the found seedling, with the rest of my butterfly weed seedlings they have two leaves that separate this has not.

RE: Can you help ID this seed?

This a A. Tuberosa seedling they are already separating...

RE: Can you help ID this seed?

A. incarnata?

RE: Can you help ID this seed?

It could also be A. curassavica. Most milkweed seeds and seedlings look alike, so I don't think you'll know until the plant grows.

Leafhead- I looked at incarnta and the seedlings so far resemble so thanks!!

Sherry tropical milkeed doesn't overwinter here I'm in central Ohio z5/6 I just found these this year. But thank you so much for your input :-) Also I didn't know if the seed would resemble a. Tuberosa so I waited until there was some differences between the two
