Dogbane has a long history of being used by First Nation People for making rope and threads for sewing and weaving various items, along with a variety of medicinal uses. It produces a latex sap that provides a natural chemical defense against predators, and produces pollen and nectar for bees, butterflies and many other insects. With the decimation of milkweed through pesticides, the Monarch Butterfly population which feeds solely on milkweed has declined dramatically and the species is now classified as endangered. Milkweed is in the Dogbane family, and Spreading Dogbane is now being looked at as a potential host plant to help save the Monarch.
