Gomphoarpus physocarpus/Asclepias physocarpa.....Pufferfish Milkweed at Bok Tower Gardens

It was easy to identify this plant; I just googled pufferfish milkweed and sure enough, that's the common name. I keep thinking I've seen this plant before but where escapes me. Hey, I'm old. It's definitely distinctive.....the odd seed pods explain "Family jewels milkweed" and "Hairy balls plant". You didn't hear that from me.
