Caption: Milkweed seeds. Seeds of the common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) on their pod. The fine hairs on these seeds, known as a pappus, aid the dispersal of the seeds by the wind. The common milkweed is native to the central and eastern USA, but is grown throughout the world as an ornamental plant. Photographed in western Pennsylvania, USA.
