Notes:  Apocynum cannabinum, Indian Hemp or Dogbane, is a member of the milkweed family that is toxic to humans and dogs, but tastes badly, so rarely sampled by either.  If you have a dog that eats everything, steer clear.  Meanwhile, it is a rather attractive plant that is great for attracting butterflies and nice in the naturalized garden.
