Yeah, I think it's just a really nicely colored Common Milkweed. You should save seeds from it and develop a garden variety from it!

Thanks Scott! If you think it is a another kind, please let me know. Common was the closest one to find. :)

Really nice. I can't say that I've ever seen such a colorful Common Milkweed.
