Asclepias subverticillata, also known as whorled milkweed, is a plant found in the United States.
Among the Zuni people the buds are eaten by little boys. The pods are also gathered when two-thirds ripe and the fibers are used for weaving clothing. The coma is made into cords and used for fastening plumes to the prayer sticks.
