Butterfly weed of Flatbush Avenue

It's exactly how that Brooklyn Botanic publication title puts it...tough natives for tough places. Flatbush Avenue in a blazing hot summer is a pretty tough spot. Joe spotted this Butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa) near the bike path on our way to Jacob Riis. It wasn't spotted last year, but Joe's noticed some growing in just about the same spot in other years.
