I have been searching high and low for milkweed plants, sap anything, has anyone tried it at all? or even been able to purchase at all?

It seems almost non existent

Did you try this site? I haven't sent for mine yet; I will soon. I think it grows wild around where I live, but I can't remember right now.

Check out his videos on fixing butterfly wings too, if you're interested. Pretty cool stuff.

Milkweed is toxic to pretty much all but Monarch Butterfly larvae.

Thats probably why it's hard to buy.

No, lilac is a bush or tree even. People here use them as hedges, sometimes. Milkweed is a flowering plant, and its seeds are very wispy and white colored; thus the name.

Asclepias

Lilacs are great too, but they tend to attract those huge (carpenter?) ants. They're not something I'd want outside my kitchen window or door, anyway.

It has its uses. While not mentioned in that article, it's said that it relieves the symptoms for poison ivy too.

think I'll have to go have a forage around a local lake and wood, I will have to remember milky color with green leaves the size of a thumb and butterflies (in the summer).
It's always handy to keep something that could possibly help towards saving someones life

If people do use it to relieve symptoms of poison ivy, then it probably grows nearby where that grows...so wear long slacks and maybe some gloves.

If it is important to you grap it and learn how to grow it while you can, there will still be sources but if the trend is declining make use of what is still available.
