Butterflyweed brings back childhood memories for me. I remember seeing it in the pasture field outside the kitchen window as a child. I tried (successfully) to leave it when cutting the field for hay, unknowingly paying homage to Robert Frost’s poem “The Tuft of Flowers,” in which the scythe spared a patch of Butterflyweed.
