I have this plant growing in my garden for more than a year. Initially I picked it up along the road.
Recently it blooms. I wonder if it's a milkweed plant?

Many thanks for your inputs.

Looks like milkweed flower to me. On the Butterfly weed the leaves
are narrow. Looks like yours are, but hard to tell.

Our wild milkweed here has the wide leaves, and the flowers are very similar, but pink. They are also fabulous fragrant - are yours fragrant?? Pretty flowers!!
