Albino Common Milkweed

Asked May 2, 2017, 4:55 PM EDT

How rare are albino common milkweed (syriaca) plants? As I was getting ready to work in the pollinator garden at the Visitor Contact Station (North Tract) at the Patuxent Research Refuge, I spotted these coming up in the lawn.

We think that since several are coming up with the same problem, that this is something in the soil or environment. We'd love to see photos of them as mature plants or flowering, if they live that long.
