Asclepias asperula found in northwestern DeWitt County, Texas, Sunday, March 2, 2008. 
About 75 miles east of San Antonio and about 75 miles west northwest of Port Lavaca.
Plants of the Asclepias asperula were found from
just sprouting to the one above with nine stems
and having buds already.  A freeze the previous
week burned the ends of the older plants but the
new sprouts look good and healthy.  Plants were
found all over the pasture in the normal locations.
Four and five inch A. oenotheroides were also found.
