I found this plant in a vacant, shady area and thought it looked neat, so I transplanted it in a sunnier spot in my front yard.

The plant is about 4 feet (1.2 meters) tall, but I'm not sure it's fully grown.

Giant Calotrope, I know it as Crown Flower, or Giant Milkweed.
It has several names...

Thank you, I was thinking its flowers looked similar to a milkweed...only much bigger.

I got to read up on it now...wondering how the monarchs will react to the plant...
