Milkweed

This white milkweed blooms in the woods. It sees little direct sunlight yet it returns each year. It is called redring milkweed due to the red ring at the base of the bloom. Note the beetle and spider on the plant. Today I moved this plant from the woods to the yard. It has a tuber root. I suspect the plant will wilt but hopefully new growth will come from the root.
