Milkweed Yellows?

Asked July 15, 2020, 11:43 AM EDT

We have milkweed plants with a broad range of yellows-like symptoms. We’ve also signed up for the Citizens Science Milkweed Project (cutting stems). (1) Can you provide feedback on the symptoms in these few photos from Northern Illinois? (2) Should plants showing these types of symptoms be excluded from the Milkweed Project? Thank you very much!
