I have had partial success in a personal project to grow milkweed plants in order to support the conditions for encouraging Monarch butterflies. In their life cycle these butterflies lay their eggs and the larvae feed exclusively on this plant. I brought home seeds two autumns ago from two spots in Ontario where it is considered a weed.
Here are a couple of larvae munching away on the leaves.
