RE: Please, can you id this plant?

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
