The seed of the common milkweed looks like a giant version of a dandelion seed, made to be carried away on the wind…to foul up someone else’s property. The seed pod looks pretty cool, though.
Edit: I read this post this morning after it posted, and I must have been tired and grumpy when I wrote this, which was late last night. This particular milkweed is the common milkweed, which as the name implies, is a weed found along side crops and in road ditches. There are milkweed plants that are raised, which flowers attract butterflies. This is not that milkweed.
