planting milkweed

Asked September 30, 2019, 9:05 PM EDT

I'm considering planting Asclepias speciosa, Asclepias incarnata and Asclepias tuberosa in my garden. Can you advise me on the current status of these varieties in Oregon? I don't want to introduce any noxious plants.

Washington County Oregon
